Jake, we don't do homework, quizzes and tests here. If you have a question about passive or active voice, type "active" or "passive" in the search field above. This is by far the most common question asked on this forum. You will find a myriad of questions and answers on the topic. You can also look at the Grammarly Handbook link at the bottom of the page.
