    Passive voice

    HeIIo guys. I have a probIem with a sentence which I'm suppose to rewrite in Present SimpIe Passive. The sentence goes Iike this: She pays a lot of money for my brother. Now I don't if I shouId write it Iike this: A Iot of money is paid by her for my brother, or Iike this: My brother is paid a Iot of money by her.
    The probIem is that I don't know which one (a Iot of money or my brother) is the subject receiving the action.

    I was never good in passive voice so if someone wouId heIp me I wouId be more then happy :)

    "My brother is paid a lot of money by her."
    This makes more sense.
