Forming the passive voice with ser + participle (Compound tenses - passive voice)

From the quiz:

Ben ________ la alarma.

Write ''Ben had been woken up by the alarm.

había sido despertado por

Could I also say, "A Ben le había despertado la alarma."?

Thank you.

Hola Lynda

Yes, that would also be correct:

A Ben lo había despertado la alarma.

A Ben le había despertado la alarma. (le is also accepted because the rules say you can use the masculine singular indirect pronoun le as a direct object pronoun) 

La alarma había despertado a Ben.

Un saludo
