I just finished marking a mid-term test for my students, and the teachers are now having different opinions as to how flexible a prepositional phrase could be in a sentence. Students were asked to transform active to passive:
Strong winds blew down trees and signs along the roads.
(1) Trees and signs along the roads were blown down by strong winds.
(2) Trees and signs were blown down along the roads by strong winds.
(3) Trees and signs were blown down by strong winds along the roads.
Most teachers voted for (1). Are (2) & (3) correct too?
Thanks for helping!
