Notes On Introduction to Active and Passive Voice - CBSE Class 7 English Grammar
There are two special forms for verbs called voice:
1.   Active voice
2.   Passive voice

The active voice is the "normal" voice. This is the voice that we use most of the time. You are probably already familiar with the active voice. In the active voice, the subject is the doer of the  action of the verb:

active    subject           verb                  object
                  Cats               eat                     fish.


The passive voice is less usual. In the passive voice, the subject receives the action of the verb:
passive                   subject                 verb                                  object
                                   Fish                   are eaten                           by cats.


The object of the active verb becomes the subject of the passive verb:

                                             Subject                                Verb                                     Object
Active                                  Everybody                          drinks                                   water.
Passive                                   Water                                is drunk                                 by everybody.
