Please can anyone explain why 'Sometimes you will be asked to..' OR 'In Factual Information questions you are asked what information an author has presented.' ?

Why not "Sometimes you will be ask" or 'In Factual Information questions you are ask..'????

As I know Asked is the past simple but why there is I see will be + asked.

In your case, "asked" is not past tense, it is future perfect.

Asked here is a passive participle; it has no tense. Many verbs have different forms for the p.p. and the past tense, for example done versus did; but in many more verbs the form is the same, and the two senses must be distinguished by their role in the sentence structure.

Participles are often used as adjectives: a stolen car, for example. How did the car get that way? It was stolen — not was steal.
