Voice, Part 8: Changing Passive to Active, Method 3

A third way of changing passive to active voice is to make the passive verb a noun:

Passive: You will be interviewed tomorrow.
Active: Your interview occurs tomorrow.

Passive: The way people are treated is the way that they might treat others.
Active: The treatment people receive dictates the treatment they might give.

Passive: Our division will be audited tomorrow.
Active: Our division audit is tomorrow.
