    The passive with reporting verbs


    I'm here, because I'm really confuse about this topic, so please if someone could help me, I would be so grateful!

    I have as homework the following exercises, but I don't understand anything...

    1. Rewrite the following sentences beginning with the words given:

    a) Sham el Nessím is thought to have marked the start of the spring festival in ancient Egypt
    It is thought....

    b) Eating salted fish is known to have benn a custom of the ancient Egyptians
    It is known...

    e) It is reported that five thousand people joined in the festivities
    Five thounsad people are reported...

    2) Complete the second sentence so that it has similar meaning to the first sentence using the word given.

    a) People believe that the festival originated in the 18th century (HAVE)

    The festival ________________________ in the 18th century.

    b) People expect that she will be choosen as carnival queen. ( BE)

    She is ______________________________ as carnival queen.

    So... thank you.

    Re: The passive with reporting verbs

    Welcome to the forum.

    As it clearly states in the forum rules, we don't help with homework. Your teacher wants to see what you can do, not what we can do. After you get your homework back from your teacher, you can come back to us if there are any comments or corrections you don't understand.

    Good luck.

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
