I want to say in passive voice that in our days the sience knows more than 200 types of something.

Is the following sentence correct?

"To the science is known about 200 types of E-coli"

  • "To science in nowadays are known about 200 types of E-coli" will be ok? Dec 19, 2017 at 14:01

    No. See @Eran's answer. If you want to include "nowadays", put it at the end. "About 200 types of E-coli are known to science nowadays." Or if you want to emphasize it, put it at the beginning and include a comma. "Nowadays, about 200 types of E-coli are known to science."

200 types are in plural, so it should be:

"About 200 types of E-coli are known to science."
