Passive Voice

Can you rewrite the following sentence into the passive voice?
You can form two passive sencences because there are two objects, although it is more common to start the passive sentence with the indirect object.

Camèlia gave us the good news. 
1. ______________________________
2. ______________________________

Complete with the passive form of the verb make:

  • make                        ____________________
  • is making                  ____________________ 
  • will make                  ____________________ 
  • is going to make        ____________________ 
  • made                         ____________________ 
  • was making               ____________________ 
  • has made                   ____________________ 
  • had made                   ____________________ 
  • to make                     ____________________
