Rewrite it in the passive: "These odds would make a professional player shudder" I would do it as follows:"A professional player would be made shudder by these odds". This sounds clumsy to me, so I'm not sure if I rewrote it correctly. Could you check it?
Rewrite these sentences using suitable forms of make:
1."We were obliged to clean up the mess we had made";
2."The prisoners-of-war were obliged to build roads across the Burmese jungle".
I would write:"We were made to clean up the mess we had made" and "The prisoners-of-war were made to build roads across the Burmese jungle", but in the example there's no "to" when "made" is used (When we were children, mother obliged us to take a bath every day - When we were children, mother made us take a bath every day). But to me it doesn't sound right without to. And take "bullies were threatening little boys" as an example how on earth would that change? What am I doing wrong?
