You might try to start from a sentence in active voice and transform it to passive. Here's a post that shows you the steps for doing that.

Television was very popular before the entry of social media into people's lives.It was a source of entertainment equally popular among all age groups.It had compelled people to take out time to watch their favorite drama series and also played a great roll to make families sit together.It made them to discuss their matters with each while sitting together to watch it.Television once had ruled over our homes and now it merely became a wall decoration piece.

Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.

A paragraph was written in passive sentences but it was deleted somehow. It was searched in different tabs on my PC but could not be found.I wondered how this could happened to me, I was quit careful while writing the paragraph.All the tabs was checked again and again but the content was lost.This situation made me feel furious and I thought to write another one. Al of a sudden an idea popped into my mind and these sentences was written about the situation I encountered while writing a paragraph.Now, please evaluate this paragraph and do comment on this freely...

Are you the Anon who had posted the question originally? Here is my comment. We need passive sentences from you that you are confused with. Your paragraph is not going to work. You can repost your questions if you want the forum to help. From a conversation perspective, I would say less than 10% is in the passive voice.

Active: Someone broke into my neighbor's house last night. John mailed the package this morning

Passive: My neighbor's house was broken into last night. The package was mailed (by John) this morning. The agent may or may not need to be included, depending on the context.
