Stragglers were still crossing the finish line an hour later. In the back seat, the children passed the time by arguing. @KyanTheDoodle

Well the characteristic that makes something passive is that the noun is having an action performed to it rather than the subject performing the verb to it.

It's not a matter of the tense of the passage. It can be present tense but still be passive.

Well let's put it this way. An active sentence would be something like "Doodle hid the bodies" and a passive sentence would be like "The bodies had been hidden by Doodle." See how they're different?
