Passive voice Hello, please help me to check some sentences below, I'm trying to change the active form to passive form. 1. Too much money makes some people rather greedy. >Some people are made rather greedy by too much money. or Some people are made to be rather greedy by too much money. 2. Peter sent my brother home. >My brother was sent home. or My brother was sent to home. Thanks a lot.

For the first sentence, your first variant is perfect! The second one is not technically wrong, but using "to be" seems a little extraneous... For your second sentence, here is my proposal: My brother was sent home by Peter. I think it is better to leave out the "to" in "sent to home."
