    First of all, this is a question. So, the answer should also be a question.

    So here we go!

    Keep the question word, Why as it is in the front.

    Now here, Subject: you Verb: (do) laugh at Object: him

    The verb suggests that the sentence is in Simple Present Tense. So, we'll change the verb to its corresponding past participle, and interchange the places of object and subject, add ‘by' after the past participle verb.

    So our final answer is;

    Why is he laughed at by you?

    Why is he being laughed at (by you) is the answer .

    While converting an active voice to passive voice, one should interchange the subject and the object. Secondly, the verb should be in the same tense. Normally past participle form is used in passive voice. Interrogation word ‘Why’ should be retained at the beginning. M.J. SUBRAMANYAM

    Why is he being laughed at (by you).

    Note the words in italics are not mandatory because, it's quiet obvious, if the conversation is one to one, the speaker is obviously referring to the person with whom the conversation is being held and who was laughing at the other being.

    "He does not like people laughing at him."

    Here the subject is "He" and the object is "people laughing at him". Now, I will have to make "people laughing at him" the subject, and make "He" the object. Here is my attempt:

    "People laughing at him is not liked by him."

    However, according to my book, it will be the following:

    "He does not like him being laughed at by people."

    Am I correct, or is my book correct?

    Edit for more context:

    This voice change question came in the Dhaka University admission exam 2020-21. I got this question from a question bank, i.e., my book. The complete question is listed below:

    Q) Change the voice of this sentence: "He does not like people laughing at him."

    (a) People laughing at him are not liked by him.

    (b) He does not like being laughed at.

    (c) To be laughed at by people are not like by him.

    (d) He does not like him being laughed at by people.

    So we don't know for certain if the subject and the object pronouns are the same person. The best answer is (b) but like other users said, it's not in the passive voice. This Indian English phenomenon to compulsively create tests about transforming the active into the passive and choosing between "whom" vs "who" does not help students be better English speakers. Trust me, it doesn't. This Q is similar to a riddle than to the English language. –

    "He does not like him being laughed at by people" sounds very awkward and unnatural. That would make me question the quality of the book and the university, and the level and quality of English the university would be able to teach. –

    In a comment I said "don't do this". But here is slightly more of an answer.

    In any sentence that contains more than one active clause with a subject and object there is always going to be more than one way to "change to passive"

    For example "I like [children singing songs]" Has a matrix clause "I like X" and a gerund "children singing songs". either of these could be made passive and so we could get

    Children singing songs is liked by me.

    I like songs being sung by children

    Songs being sung by children is liked by me.

    All three contain a passive element. And there are other possibilities since active participles can be changed to passive "I like songs sung by children".

    Now, normally when a test says "change to passive" it means "change the matrix clause to the passive and leave to other ones alone. But "like" is a verb that is particularly rare in the passive. Idiomatically "X is liked by me" is virtually never used. So, your book has randomly decided that you should change the gerund to a passive form.

    The only way to answer such questions is to mind read the person setting the test. It isn't worth worrying about such questions.

    In this particular case both your suggestion and the book answer are hopelessly non-idiomatic. Yours because "like" is rarely put into the passive, the book because the pronoun "him" and the "by" phrase should be removed. It would actually be quite idiomatic to say "He doesn't like being laughed at."

    So don't do this question, and go and read a nice book! I'd recommend something by George Orwell. He was always very clear that passive voice should be avoided whenever possible.

    Of the four options:

    A) is passive but hopelessly non-idiomatic, so doesn't express the same idea as the given expression

    B) is in the active voice (for the main clause)

    C) is ungrammatical

    D) is active voice and non-idiomatic

    "Songs being sung by children is liked by me."- Shouldn't it be "Songs being sung by children are liked by me."? Songs (being sung by children) are liked (by me). Thoughts? –

    @tryingtobeastoic the sentence speaks of the idea of songs being sung by children, in this case, rather than the songs themselves. –

    @tryingtobeastoic Yes and no. Ususally the subject is "Songs", but you can read the subject as the gerund "being sung" which is singular. And moreover, you shouldn't use "is liked" So this is an example of a weird grammatical sentence which you should never use (neither with "is" nor with "are") –
