Hi everybody,

I would to enquire about this expression: 'claim to be'.

In the sentence: 'I claim to be an evil man' Do I tell it from myself or is it like a passive voice (and in this case other people think it about me)?

Finally I'm curious about that whether 'is it' is correct in my question or it should be 'it is' (I thought that the two parts of the sentence was on an equal level).

Thanks for any help in advance

You're telling it about yourself.

Passive voice would be "I am claimed (by others) to be an evil man."

"Is it like a passive voice?" is a grammatically correct question.
Yes, the two questions in your sentence are on an equal level.

Eg, "Do I go alone, or are you coming too?"

I claim to be an evil man. -- So you say. That is what you think about yourself. It is likely that

not everyone is agreed on this, because everyone has a different perspective. So, in this case, you are the doer.

Is it is correct. You are asking two questions.
