    Post passive sentences

    Dear Teachers
    I don,t understand the meaning of passive sentences without subject , for example in sentences like "It is damaged" or " It is broken" the meaning is not completely clear to me.

    Re: passive sentences

    Those sentences have subjects. One can say about a vase "It is broken". "It" refers to "vase".
