Transitive Verbs DO act on subjects

Subject is receiving the action.

The ball was kicked.
Because the subject (ball) is receiving the action (being kicked), this is in the transitive passive form.
The ball was kicked by Mark.

Modify the main verb in some way.

To make passive (He kicks the ball. ==> The ball kicked by him.)
To make perfect tenses (I finished my homework)
To make negative (I like them ==> I not like them.)

Used to indicate some action was done in the past
