In this lesson we will learn about changing a sentence into passive voice when the active verb is in the present perfect tense.
Active verb form: has/have + past participle form of the verb
Passive verb form: has/have + been + past participle form of the verb
When we change an active sentence into a passive sentence, the object of the active verb becomes the subject of the passive verb. The verb also undergoes some changes. For example, the passive verb in the present perfect tense is made with has / have + been + past participle form of the verb.

- I have finished the job. (Active)
