    Hello ferose,

    I will try to exlain it to you.

    Have/has finished = active
    Have/has been finished = passive

    He has finished his work
    He has been finished his work
    The work has been finished by him

    Best regards,
    Dany

    No problem. If anyone reading this is confused about why I corrected that, read our page on The Use of the Apostrophe in English.
