Passive Using "Get"
In English, the passive can always be made using the verb "to be". In informal English, "get" is also often used to construct passive sentences. But it's not always possible.
We use "get" in a passive sentence when we talk about something that happened or something that changed, so it is NOT used for verbs such as 'like', 'believe' or 'say'.
That tree was/got blown over in the storm last night.
This criminal is known to police in five different countries. (gets known isn't possible here.)
For each sentence, use the passive with "get" whenever possible.
