♦ Passive Voice का प्रयोग कहाँ होता है ?
1. जब क्रिया स्वत: नहीं होता बल्कि उसे किया जाता है |
जैसे: Tea grows both in Assam and Ceylon. (×)

2. जब क्रिया महत्वपूर्ण हो यानि ‘घटना’ |

♦ इस वाक्य में ‘घटना’ महत्वपूर्ण है यानि किसी ‘दुर्घटना’ के बाद घायल व्यक्ति को तुरंत अस्पताल ले जाना और उसे मृत घोषित किया जाना| यहाँ घायल को अस्पताल ले जाने वाले ‘लोग’ और ये घोषणा करने वाले ‘डाक्टर’ कि घायल को मृत लाया गया अप्रासंगिक (irrelevant) है|
3. जब करता को पता नहीं या ये महत्वपूर्ण नहीं कि कर्ता ज्ञात हो|

♦ कुछ क्रियाएं निश्चित sub के द्वारा किए जाते है| ऐसे वाक्यों में active voice में उसी sub का प्रयोग करें जो सामान्यत: वह कार्य करता हो अगर passive voice में sub का उल्लेख नहीं हो |
♦ इसी प्रकार क्रियायें अगर किसी indefinite pronoun या vague noun के द्वारा किए जाएं तो Passive voice में ‘by + sub‘ का प्रयोग न करें| ऐसा तब भी किया जाता है जब ‘sub’ इतना obvious हो कि उसका उल्लेख करना जरुरी नहीं हो |
♦ Be (या उसके forms) अगर main verb के स्थान पर हो तो वाक्य passive voice में नहीं हो सकता|
जैसे: 1. I am happy. (A.V)
