    The jeans were sold to the customers.

    "The jeans were sold to the customers." Is this a passive sentence ?

    Re: The jeans were sold to the customers.

    It's is a sentence containing a passive construction. Many people would call it a passsive sentence.

    Re: The jeans were sold to the customers.

    If you were wondering because there's no agent, most passives don't have an agent.
