    Re: should divide or should be divided?

    [1] A class should divide (themselves) into 2 teams.
    Meaning, on their own, by themselves.

    [2] A class should be divided (by the teacher) into 2 teams.
    Meaning, someone tells them to do it.


    Could you give us the complete sentence for this example?

    Ex: ... improve knowledge of/about domestic animals
