Passer vs. se passer

Passer vs. se passer

Why is the answer to this:  Sarah ________ la salade à Michel.

se passe as opposed to passe?  

Isn't this a simple act of passing something, as in the first example, "passer quelque chose"?  I understood that it only needed the reflexive pronoun for something happening or someone doing without something.   Can you enlighten me?


Thanks.

Hi Rebecca, 

Just found your previous question. I have answered the other one but let me know if you are still confused about the different verbs.
