Can you please tell me if there are something wrong with the following sentences?
No mercy is shown to a cruel person. No mercy shouldn't be shown to a cruel person. Nobody wants to shown mercy to a cruel person.
I didn't understand last one. Nobody wants to show mercy to a cruel person.This sentence is active.How can I make it passive? Can you please tell me?
Is this possible? Nobody wants to be shown mercy to a cruel person.
Do you know what the phrase "show mercy" means? I'll rewrite the sentence. Say:
Nobody wants to show kindness (be kind to) a cruel person.
I found this sentence 'If I go out and start entering my neighbors houses and kill them, I cannot and dont expect to be shown mercy'
In this sentence 'to be shown mercy' is in passive form.
There is a group of people and they dont want other people to show mercy to cruel people.Because they think that showing mercy to a cruel person is wrong. And I say that: Some people dont want other people to show mercy to cruel person. Now I want to say this in passive form:
Some people dont want to be shown mercy to a cruel.
Sometimes putting something into the passive voice (as I already demonstrated) just doesn't work very well. Furthermore, I don't think "I don't expect to be shown mercy" is in the passive voice.
(There is so much wrong with that post, Mike, why did you focus on one sentence? )
