I don't know if it is possible to change the voice of optatative and exclamatory sentence.

What are the passive form of these sentences Suppose:

  1. go to the shop
  2. Hurrah! we have won the game!
  • The first sentence is imperative, not optative. Optative would be something like "Long live the queen!" or "May he live forever!"

Your first sentance can't really be put into the passive voice. The closest I can think of is something like "The shop must be gone to!", but this is not something any native speaker would actually say, and it requires adding a modal verb anyway.

However, your second sentence can easily be put into the passive voice:

Hurrah! The game has been won (by us)!
