Verbs with prepositions in Passive
Where do prepositions in Passive sentences go?
When we put an active sentence, where a preposition follows after the verb (e.g. break into, look after, listen to), into passive – the preposition remains immediately after the verb.
|Active sentence||Passive sentence|

|They looked for the baby.||The baby was looked for.|
|Someone shouts at the man.||The man is shouted at.|
