Hello everyone! I need your help. 
 
Help me to put this sentence into Passive:
What music makes them feel relaxed?

What music are they made to feel relaxed by?
 
(Sounds VERY awkward  though, much like a tongue twister : )

That īs interesting! I incline to the suggested variant too but how about the rule prohibitting to use the particle īto ī after the verb make or it doesn īt concern this instance?! thank you!

Well, the sentence is correct grammatically because:
to make sb do sth
BUT
to be made to do sth
:)
They made me give them the keys.
BUT
I was made to give them the keys.
 
Mysterious language, that English! :)

Ah, yes. Passive voice. Or as I call it, Yoda-speak. 
 
Always searching for fun ways to teach it.
