The subject in a sentence when performing the action on the target of the action, it is called the active voice. However, the main focus of the passive voice is the action’s target, and the verb acts on the subject. There are numerous distinctions between the two grammatical voices, the most significant of which is that the active voice is clearer and more prompt, whereas the passive voice is subtler and can appear more detached. A sentence that focuses on the person doing the action, is in the active voice. Unless the majority of your writing is scientific or reporting on incidents involving unknown perpetrators, the active voice should be used for the majority of your sentences. The passive voice is used in sentences where the target of an action or the action itself is more important than who or what is performing the verb.
