    The sentence makes sense with the verb, so the verb is properly used and it is Active!

    here is how you will know.... Active verbs perform the actions of a subject within a sentence. Use active verbs when you want to create interest and emphasize the action. Use active verbs to give an order. Passive verbs describe the action done by the subject of a sentence. Passive verbs use a linking verb alongside the main verb. With passive verbs, it is often possible that the subject is not named. Use passive verbs when you want to: Downplay the actor, for example when: The actor is not known The actor is relatively unimportant The actor has already been named. Downplay the action, for example To add focus to the object When the action may seem hostile
