Homework: Differentiating sentence structure exercise + A/P voice practice.

Active/Passive Voice: Write A for Active, P for Passive, or NV for No Voice. Then, change ALL active voice sentences to passive voice and all passive voice sentences to active voice. NOTE: If the sentence can only be active and cannot be changed to passive, simply identify it as ACTIVE. Also, if the sentence is No Voice, it also cannot be converted.

2. The girls have seen the show before.
3. They met a gang of thugs on the street.
4. Terry and his friends were seen at the scene of the crime by the witnesses.
