Hint: The passive voice is a grammatical voice construction that can be used in many languages. The grammatical subject expresses the theme or patient of the main verb in a clause with passive voice – that is, the person or thing who undergoes the action or has its state modified. It is used to indicate that you're more interested in the individual or object who is affected by action than the person or object who performs the action.

Complete answer:
When the subject is the one who performs the action, the statement is inactive speech. When the new subject (object in active voice) is the recipient of the action, the statement is in passive voice.

In the active voice, the object now replaces the subject and vice versa. (subject + verb + object, with the subject and object, switched around)

There are two ways to write: active voice and passive voice when there are two subjects in a sentence.
D.O or Direct Object (a ticket) + Verb (will be given) + Indirect object I.O (To you) + subject (by the manager). And I.O (to you) + verb (will be given) + D.O (a ticket) + subject (manager). The word 'by' is often applied to the original subject since the sentence's meaning must be preserved.

Now let us look at the given options:
Option A. A ticket will be given to you by the manager: This option is incorrect because it is incomplete. The above sentence contains objects, therefore, there are two ways to write the sentence.
Option B. You will be given a ticket by the manager: This option is incorrect because it is incomplete. The above sentence contains objects, therefore, there are two ways to write the sentence.
Option C. Both A and B: This is the correct answer. The above sentence contains two objects, the indirect object "you" and the direct object "a ticket" are the two objects in the given sentence. As a result, when it's translated to passive voice, the sentence can be written in two ways:
D.O or Direct Object (a ticket) + Verb (will be given) + Indirect object I.O (To you) + subject (by the manager) and I.O (to you) + verb (will be given) + D.O (a ticket) + subject (manager).
The word 'by' is often applied to the original subject since the sentence's meaning must be preserved.
Option D. None of the above: This option is incorrect because Option C is the correct answer. So, one of the options is correct.
Thus the correct answer is option ‘C’.

Note: The voice of a verb defines the relationship between the verb's action and the participants defined by its arguments in grammar. The verb is in the active voice while the subject is the action's agent or doer. The verb is said to be in the passive voice when the subject is the action's patient, objective, or undergoer.
