Hello again teachers,
I wasn't used to using passives when studying. I'd like to ask if thank and congratulate are used in passives and if the sentences are correct.
>I was pissed off the other day by a technician when he rudely answered my question.
>Yesterday, I was thanked for repairing our portable heater when it was cut out.
>We are being congratulated by our friends for my wife pregnancy after trying to conceive for 8 years. When I'm asked if I like a boy or a girl I'm telling them that whatever will be given by Him for us as long as a healthy baby.
Thanks so much
Our friends are congratulating us on my wife's preganancy after 8 years of trying (to conceive). When people ask me if I'd like a boy or (a) girl, I tell them I'll be happy with whatever God gives/grants/sends us, so long as the baby is healthy.
