Hello,

1. Anil washed the car last week.

I have to change it into passive form.

a) The car was washed by Anil last week.

b)The car was washed last week by Anil.

I want to know the position of the phrase last week in the passive sentence.

Are both (a) and (b) correct?

Hello

In English adverbials are arranged commonly in the order of manner-place-time.
Jack killed Bill on the street yesterday.
Bill was killed by Jack on the street yesterday.
The agent phrase "by Jack" is a kind of manner adverbial.

Hi,

Yes, commonly in the order of manner-place-time. However, you may also wish to emphasize a phrase by moving it more to the front.

A: I heard that Bill was killed in the park.

B: No, Bill was killed on the street yesterday by Jack.

Best wishes, Clive
