Not all verbs can have passive forms. Passive structures are not possible with intransitive verbs like die, cry or arrive, which cannot have objects.
- He died yesterday.
- The baby cried aloud.
Some transitive verbs, too, are seldom used in the passive. Most of these verbs refer to states, not actions. Examples are: have, lack, resemble, suit etc.
- I have a house in the city. (BUT NOT A house is had by me.)
- My shirt doesn’t fit me. (BUT NOT I am not fitted by my shirt.)
- You lack tact. (BUT NOT Tact is lacked by you.)
- She resembles an angel. (BUT NOT An angel is resembled by her.)
Some prepositional verbs are mainly used in the active. Examples are: walk into, agree with.
- We walked into the room. (BUT NOT The room was walked into by us.)
- She agreed with me. (BUT NOT I was agreed with by her.)
