subject verb agreement
ACTIVE TO PASSIVE
Active voice: I have been providing intervention to John for the past 5 year.
Passive voice: John has been provided intervention for the past 5 year.
What is the subject verb agreement when convert a sentence from active to passive?
Active voice = I have been providing,
Passive voice = John has been provided (since john is a third person singular can I use has been provided).
Is it a correct sentence? what is the correct subject verb agreement?
You are correct. You always use the subject to determine the proper verb form.
Active voice = I have been providing...
Passive voice = John has been provided...
If you make the subject plural, the verb would be plural.
Active voice = I have been providing them...
Passive voice = They have been provided...

Active voice sentence is correct, which is present perfect continuous, but passive voice has minor mistake. Passive voice present perfect continious subject verb agreement is have been being + past parciple verb.Therefore the correct passive sentence is "John has been being provided ......."
