    I suggest writing "How long have computers been used?"

    I think 'housemaid' in 3 needs an article, and I'd use 'the'. In addition, I'd rewrite your sentence as "The dressing trolleys have been cleaned with the antiseptic".
    It seems to me that 'sucrose' is an uncountable noun; I suggest you not use 'a' in your answer in 5.

    Re: please ! Can anybody correct this sentence?

    Noor, all your answers fail to include the subject of the verb in the active sentences.

    Example: 'Dad paid the bill' >> 'The bill was paid by dad'.

    Try again.

    ..

    I understood your reply . But I dont have any problem with the short sentences(actually, I mean with the short object). What I was want to say that I have a problem when the object involves more than one word. So, I need to solve my problem !!
