    Default active/passive

    a. There are a few things to do to finish this project.
    b. There are a few things to be done to finish this project.

    Are both these sentences acceptable?

    Hello Azz,
    Both sentences are acceptable.

    Other variations: There are a few things to do before this project is finished. There are a few things to do to get this project finished. There are a few things left to do before this project is finished. There are a few more things to do before this project is finished.
