    Welcome to the forum, SomenathKhan.

    Intransitive verbs cannot have a passive form.

    Welcome to the forums, SomenathKhan.

    'Sir' is unacceptable here as a form of address. It is disrespectful to the female teachers who may want to help you.

    It is not possible to convert your sentence into the passive voice. Why do you think it is possible and why do you want to do so?

    What is a question bank? And don't keep writing 'sir'.

    It's a mistake. Did they give an answer?
