    active vs. passive

    I am trying to make a point in an essay about active vs. passive. Could someone state what voice each sentence is in and then rewrite it to the opposite voice.

    1)Paul never went up Cordelia street with out a shuddering of loathing.

    2)You must write to your friend.

    3) When the right moment came he jumped.

    thank you for any help.
