Will you dare to answer me? 'hospital administration dogged by myriad challenges'- this is the sentence given as headine in today's THE HINDU news paper. so my question is- is this a passive voice sentence? if it is, then why there is no auxiliary verb. and if not then why "by " is there in that sentence with V3

Yes, it's a passive. Because it's a headline. Headlines nearly always miss out small grammatical words such as articles and auxiliary verbs. And why do we need to 'dare to answer'?

"hospital administration" is decorated by "dogged by myriad challenges". So it is like a phrase, rather than a sentence.
