a) The boy punished by the teacher for lying.
b) The boy was punished by the teacher for lying.
c) The boy had been punished by the teacher for lying.
d) The teacher had been punishing the boy for lying.
Answer: option b)
When the active verb is in the simple past tense, we make the passive form by putting was/were before the past participle form of the verb. Thus ‘punished’ becomes ‘was/were punished’ in the passive voice.
