    Active voice is more...rather active than passive voice. XD I know that won't clear it up, so I'll give you an example of a sentence in both passive and active voice. Passive: The flowers were given to Lokid by Doodle Active: Doodle gave the flowers to Lokid Does that make sense?

    Well it's actually passive. The active form would be "A sixteen-year-old boy drove this race car."
