    Conversion of active voice into passive voice

    "He laughed at me".
    "I worked on my computer".
    "I am looking at you".

    Subject= He, I
    verb= worked, laughed, looking
    prepositional phrases= at me, on my computer, at you

    Is the passive voice of above three sentences possible? (These sentences don't have objects, i.e, intransitive verbs)
    Members and teachers are humbly requested to please answer this question satisfactorily, I will be very grateful to you people.

    It is possible to write passive versions of all three but they would all be very unnatural. Why do you want to know the passive versions?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    This is the latest in a series of threads you periodically post on this topic, shani.

    Please explain why you are so fixated on the subject.
