    Hello CobraArtistique1288,

    Passive voice is used when the subject of the sentence receives the action of the verb, not when the subject of the sentence is doing the action.

    I think that this information sheet can help you understand better :

    Hope it helps ! :)

    When the person or object comes after the action or when it’s completely absent from the sentence, you have passive voice.
