9.56 Forms of the Present Passive Indicative

The forms of the passive and the middle are the same in the present system, so the endings for the present passive are identical to the endings for the present middle which you just learned.

So here is a chart showing those same endings again, but this time comparing the active and passive forms side by side. Please also make sure you study these sample sentences which show active and passive verbs transformed.
