Passive sentences with two objects

Some active sentences have both a direct and an indirect object. In English both can be the subject in a passive structure. The indirect object is introduced by to in the passive sentence and the verb phrase is unchanged:
  • ACTIVE: My sister asked me a question.
    • PASSIVE 1: A question was asked to me.
    • PASSIVE 2: I was asked a question.
