'To fit' is a transitive verb in this sentence. It means 'to adjust, to tailor something'. The verb in the sentence is in the Present Simple Passive.

  • But it's used adjectivally. You can't say "I well fitted the blocks." So it's not passive. Nov 21, 2018 at 14:40
  • It IS Passive. The absence of the logical subject can be easily reconstructed: '... by builders'.

  • 'Fitted' is a verb form as it is modified by an adverb 'well'.

  • The sentence with Active Voice would be: 'I fitted the blocks well'.

  • Then the passive sentence would be "the blocks were fitted well". Nov 21, 2018 at 22:07
