I have find this sentence:
I wouldn't have thought there's much chance of the package _______ here before Friday?
where "_______" has to be filled. My first try was "to be" but the correct answer is "being".
It is not clear then why "to be" is wrong. In my opinion, "to be" is passive and underlines that package was carried in some location (i.e. here) before Friday.In addition the package has been already carried. On the other hand, "being" is more related to an action in progress but "would have thought" suggests me that the action ended.
Where is my logic wrong?
