This question already has an answer here:
- he was seen *to break* the window 2 answers
We saw Peter drive away.
Turned into passive:
Peter was seen to drive away.
I don't agree with this, because the meaning would be entirely different- in my limited understanding. What's making me unsure is that this is on an educational curriculum book, whose creators would surely be more proficient at English than me. We all make mistakes, so is the sentence correct?
The alternative which I suggest:
Peter was seen driving away.
The other question doesn't adress my problem. The sentence is indeed grammatically correct, but I'm saying the meaning changes because it would cause a confusion with the phrasal verb (or idiom- I might be mixing them up) "see to". I want someone to confirm or deny my arguement. Here: https://idioms.thefreedictionary.com/see+to
