So I need your help to do this then I will study it. I will give some of them a try and you guys can correct it for me. :X

Here is what i need to do

Read the fallowing paragraphs. Change the active sentences to the passive form. Keep the same tense as the original sentence use the correct tense, the correct past participial form of the main verb and put the adverbials in the correct positions. not all of the sentences can be changed. Some by phrases are necessary , others are not

The designs are very precise.
They seem to have some kind of mathematical significance.
Someone made these pictures more then 3000 years ago.
They removed stones and dirt over large areas to expose the different colored soil beneath.
Are these designs proof that some aliens from outer space visited earth 3000 years ago?'

Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
Bump.
Need help with this one as well.

Who made these pictures and why?
Did the ancient people make them to use as offerings for the gods?
Did the ancient people create them as "direction signs" for visitors from other planets?
No one knows but we know one thing: We don't know the reasons for and the methods of construction but the pictures have been preserved for at least 2000- and maybe even 3000- years!

8. Did the gods were being offered?

Hi xHealthY

Part of the problem in your first post is that 3 out of the 4 active sentences have errors in them. I have made the necessary corrections in your passive sentences:
xHealthY1. In the 1930's, The Nazca Lines were discovered by pilots flying over Peru's Atacama Desert.
Use "were" because the word "Lines" is plural.

2. These huge pictures in the desert were drawn by someone.
Use "were" because the word "pictures" is plural. You need to use "these" for the same reason.

3. Birds, spiders and abstract geometrical designs were despite depicted.
The word "despite" is not a verb, and it is clearly wrong in both your active sentence and your passive sentence. I assume that the intended verb is "depict".
Use "were" because the subject of the passive sentence is plural.


4. Flowers and animals were represented
Use "were" because the subject of the passive sentence is plural.
The word "animal" should be plural in both the active and the passive sentence.
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
I have underlined and highlighted in blue the part of the sentence that needs to be used in order to form the passive. The parts that are in boldface type are objects in the active sentence. The object is used as the subject in the passive form:
xHealthYThe designs are very precise.
They seem to have some kind of mathematical significance.
Someone made these pictures more than 3000 years ago.
They removed stones and dirt over large areas to expose the different colored soil beneath.
Are these designs proof that some aliens from outer space visited earth 3000 years ago?'
Here are the passive forms:
xHealthY5. more then 3000 years ago someone had been made these pictures.
These pictures were made more than 3000 years ago.
(It is completely unnecessary to add "by someone" in this sentence.)

6. Stones and dirt were removed ...
(It is completely unnecessary to add "by them" in this sentence.)

7. Are these designs proof that earth was visited by some aliens from outer space 3000 years ago?
