What is the meaning of Be + past participle, as in "be done", "be claimed" etc.?
The Past Participle is the 'ed' or 'en' form of a verb, and it denotes past tense.
The forms of 'be' are as follows -
Infinitive to be
Present am, is, are
Past was, were
Present Participle being
Past Participle been
Present Subjunctive be
Past Subjunctive were
So, the past participle of 'be' is been.
Was that grammatically correct? But I thought it would be better if I
put "be done" in the sentence, which will be like this:
The first sentence is correct, and in the second, you will have to use the Present from of 'be', which is 'is', the same way that you have done in the first sentence.
So the second sentence should be -
"I will come, when my base is upgraded properly."
the does the Be + Past participle works work?
Please use the table given above.
The third question is, are there any words that describe the condition of a thing already upgraded? Since "upgraded" is a verb, it cannot be used as an adjective. Are there any synonyms
of for it?
Upgraded is an adjective. Upgrade is a verb. Upgraded is the past-participle of upgrade, and this makes it also. So upgraded can be used as a verb as-well-as an adjective.
