This question came from our site for linguists, etymologists, and serious English language enthusiasts.

For the first example, the correct sentence is

The box will be sent on Friday.

This is because this sentence is a passive voice sentence, so it requires the past participle of the verb. The past participle of "to send" is "sent."

For the second example, the correct sentence is

So he knows who sent him this amazing gift!

This is because the phrase "who sent him this amazing gift" is a clause which requires a finite verb. Specifically, it contains the simple past tense of "to send," which is "sent."
