Q 1:
Basic rules for changing Active voice into Passive voice
It is necessary in describe definition of active and passive voice before to explain the basic rules of active and passive voice.
Active Voice: A verb is said to be in the active voice when its form shows that the persons or thing which is subject, dons something, or is the doer of an action: as,
i. Arshad writes a letter.
ii. We drink code water.
Passive Voice: A Verb is said to be in the passive voice when its form shows that something is being done to the person or thing which is its subject: as,
i. A letter is written by Arshad.
ii. Cold water is drunk by us.
The form of the verb is called “voice”, because it shows whether the subject dose something or is being done to it.
Basic rules or the change from active voice to passive voice
1. The object of the verb in the active voice become the subject o the verb in the passive voice.
2. The subject in the passive has generally the preposition “by” placed before in the passive voice.
3. In the passive vice one of the various form of the verb of be (is, (am, are, was, were, being, been) is used with the past participle o the verb: as Active passive I. His father likes him………………….. He is liked by his father. II. I am writing a letter, …………………. A letter is being written by me.
4. When the verb is in the second and express a command or request, etc, the verb “let” is used in the passive voice; as Serve and obey your elders ……………… (Active voice) Let your elders be served and obeyed.( Passive voice)
5. In the interrogative sentences “who” is changed into “by whom “. In a similar way preposition is added to question words to make the sense passive. The verb is also readjusted accordingly: as, i) who wrote this letter? (Active Voice) ii) by whom this letter was written? (Passive Voice) i) Why did you beat him? (Active Voice) ii) Why was he beaten by you? (Passive Voice)
6. It will be noticed from rule (I) that the object of a verb in the active voice becomes subject in the passive voice.
7. Sometimes a sentence has two object, (a) “ Direct object’ and (b) “ an indirect object “ In such cases on of these may be made the subject in the passive voice, while the other object is put at its original place: as I forgave him and his fault (Direct object). Active Voice He and his fault were forgiven by me. ( Indirect object) Or HE was forgiven his fault by me. (Passive Voice)
8. Some intransitive verb too may have a passive forum in rare cases. They are made transitive by adding a preposition after them, or when they have a cognate object’ as, I. He laughed at the peer man. (Active Voice) The poor man was laughed at by him (Passive Voice) ii. I have fought a good fight. (Active Voice) A good fight has fought by me. (Passive Voice)

Q 5:
Differentiate between a Method, technique and approach.
A method is a general process of creating interaction between the subject matter offered by the school and the students. It has an established sequence of doing something. We can say that:
A method is a planned offer.
It has an established sequence
It also an established relationship among different parts.
It is way of inducing interaction between the subject matter linked and the student.
A method is directly linked with objectives. The spirit of method is the feeling of “how” works. A method emphasize on proper and systematic planning of content. A method that is a vast activity which induces interaction between the subject matter and students. A method as a whole include many techniques and is planned before hand.

In contrast to method, a technique is very limited, which although induces re-action but does not go further in a continuum. Numerous techniques can be used in a teaching method.
According to dictionary of Education, techniques are a way of doing things which can be repeated again and again. A technique can be process of doing things. It can be a way of manipulating thing or it can be a procedure of completing some work. A teacher usually uses the following kinds of teaching techniques during his lesson.
i. Achievement tests
ii. Using exercise books
iii. Using bulletin board
iv. Using questions
v. Home work
vi. Use of A.V. aids
vii. Use of library
viii. Using individual and group competitions So we can that technique is directly linked with method. The spirit of technique is “With what”. A technique emphasizes physiological and logical aspects. It is limited activities which although induces reaction but does not go further to continue. It is a part and is seldom planned.
A language is a means of communication. A language is meat which human being communicate with each other. Through this process individuals inform each other desires, their plans and feelings about objects and events. To make communication effective the users of language require approach. Natural approach is called. Acquisition Theory. The central idea of the approach is not new. But the present formulation of this approach is such that it is the latest approach in the field of foreign language teaching.
It may be stated as acquiring a foreign language in a purely environment. The natural environment means where no conscious effort for “learning” on language is made.
Kinds of approach
There are three kinds of approach, as,
1. Formalist approach.
2. Activist approach.
3. Appropriate approach.

Formalist Approach
In the formalist approach the emphasis is on forms. The teachers the rules pf language and their applications in very detail and expects that by studying the rules, the students will master the language. This approach relics on the deductive form of teaching moving from the statements of the rules to their application in the example.
Activist Approach:-
No doubt that many practicing teachers of the modern languages follow the formalist approach because it is easy to follow for the teacher, but there have always been protest in favor of some lining language. The activist approach is a functional approach to the structure of the language. The rare and the exceptional things are left for the later stages. It familiarizes the students first with forms of the language used for communication in speech.
Appropriate approach:-
The effectiveness of teaching method depends upon selection of method. Either method is relative to situation or not.
The strategy which a teacher uses for his teaching according to content material is called appropriate approach. In this approach, appropriate materials are used to create proper situation. Appropriate approach varies from content to content and teacher to teacher. This approach is different with different teachers.
