    passive form

    Hi guys,
    how can i expres two passive forms of two different verbs in one clause? For example if i say: "I was attempted to be robbed" or "I was said to be sacked"

    Above sentences are probably nonsence, but how else can i imply those situations? What is your suggestion?

    Thank you

    Re: passive form

    You may use the passive voice with both of the verbs. Usually, I use the present perfect after the first verb.

    I was said to have been sacked.

    She was rumoured of having been (or: being) fired/assaulted/interviewed.
