Answer:

It is an active voice sentence.

Explanation:

To find out if the sentence is in active or passive voice you have to look at the form of the verb.

The passive voice sentence has a verb in form

Verb to be can be used ia any tense.

In given sentence the form of the verb is told, so it is an active voice sentence (in Past Simple tense)
