    hello, teachers passive or active?

    Hello, teachers passive or active?

    1 The fighting broke out on April 14, ___________3 innocent people with more than________.
    A killed injured B killing injured
    C killed injuring D killing injuring

    2 Once harm______ to your health, it takes several months for your physical system to recover.
    A does B is done

    I think the answer to the first one is A. Because people are killed and injured in the fighting.

    the answer to the second one is A because it harms your health. What do you think? Thank you!

    There is a number missing where I have put in X. The fighting killed the people, so we need the active 'killing'.

    2 Once harm______ to your health, it takes several months for your physical system to recover.
    A does B is done

    What harms your health? We are not told. 'Harm' here is a noun, the grammatical subject of a verb that can only be passive.
