I'm confused with the use of 'involve' and ‘involved’.

Should it be:

  1. The company is involve in trading and marketing


  1. The company is involved in trading and marketing.

2 is correct. The infinitive of this verb is “to be involved”, so it will be involved in any tense. You can think of “involved” as an adjective with this usage.

I was involved

I am involved

I will be involved

I had been involved


Don’t confuse it with the verb “to involve”
