The sentence must be passive since we do not have any subject.

Thank you for the comment.

>The sentence must be passive

This depends on a verb you choose, I think.

 

For example, you can see the example sentence below in some dictionary.

-The Soviet Union comprised several socialist republics.

Dear 243,

 

You are very welcome. You are right all verbs shouldn't be passive ,however, I am talking about the sentences you wrote. "The alphabet" needs a passive sentence since we don't have a subject.
