Hi, Ahmed,

@Ahmed.A.A posted:

Hi, where does (by + the agent) come in the passive?

Which is correct:

a- "The cake was made for the party by Sara."

b- "The cake was made by Sara for the party."

I think both answers are OK.

I see that what is natural to say here is: "Sara made the cake for the party." If I had to choose between 'a' and 'b', I'd go with the end position because this puts more emphasis on the the performer.
