hi,

Please help me on this

1. Open the door - Active Voice

Let the door be opened - Passive Voice

2. Prepare yourself for the worst. - Active Voice

Be prepared for the worst. - Passive Voice (correct?)

Both are imperatives, but why cant the second one be started with "Let" ?

Thanks in Advance

What cannot be cured must be endured. (passive)

Well grammatically, I don't see why not..."Let them be prepared for the worst" isn't incorrect. It is just questionable where this would be used....and that makes it sound odd...who is the person/entity who can decide whether or not they may be prepared for the worst?...who are they....?
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Dear Doha0011,

"Let's" is the imperative form of "we" and can't be used in your examples 'cause your sentence is an imperative form of "you".

Regards,

Iman
