    Post Verbs in Passive Voice in combination with Conjunction - AND

    Thanks to obliging teachers first.

    My question is as follow:

    active voice: The people regarded him as an impostor and called him a villain.

    passive voice 1: He was regarded as an impostor and called a villain.

    OR

    passive voice 2: He was regarded as an impostor and was called a villain.

    based on the context of the sentence in active voice, pls explain to me which passive voice is correct.

    thanks so much. have a nice day

    Either is fine. The first passive sentence (without the second was) is as good as (or even better than) the second passive sentence.
