    One thread is enough.

    Do you have any idea which one is correct?

    P.S. It's sentence.

    Cheers!

    It's obvious that you should study the passive voice. You can't expect to learn basic grammar rules just by asking. Study first, and then, should you have any difficulties to understand those rules or find them confusing, feel free to ask.
