Passive and active voice

0

In contrasting the two styles of writing, readership, structure and style will be considered.Grammarly keeps picking this up saying it is in passive voice but how ever I change it, the same thing happens. How would you change this sentence to active voice.

Lesley, I will tell you beyond Pribyl's answer that using the passive voice is not a grammatical error but a stylistic difference. Sometimes passive is preferred. For your sentence, I like the active construction better.
