    They are correct English sentences, they are in passive voice and they mean more or less the same as your original sentence. But technically, they are not made by changing the voice of it. The original sentence is passive already. If you don't understand what I'm talking about someone (maybe I) will surely explain it to you.

    Are they some kind of puzzles? Most of your sentences can't be changed to passive voice.

    I am not a teacher.

    It's the same story. You did more than just transforming the sentence to passive. For example, the oiginal sentence was a simple sentence. In your sentence, there is a clause.

    Hmm, maybe Alexander the Great should have tried to untie the Gordian Knot without using a sword.
