Welcome to the forum, CVS123.

We don't give tutorials on grammar topics which are extensively covered elsewhere. For example, click here. Ask us again if you have any specific problems.

We appreciate the word 'please' when being asked for help, and 'I' is always capitalised in standard English.

Active: "I kicked the ball."
Passive: "The ball was kicked by me."
