    Troubles with passive voice

    I'm having a few issues with passive voice. Can anyone help? Or is there a free program that someone can direct me to, to help with this?

    thanks

    Example sentances:

    Pet rocks were popular with adults in 1976.

    John could be fired as early as tomorrow if the funds haven't been recovered.

    Janice can snore like a lumber mill when she has a cold.

    These sentences aren't in the passive and couldn't easily be made passive. What's the issue you're having exactly?
