    Default has being charged

    Is the tense correct?


    The woman has being charged by a mistake for a broken closet door in a dormitory. The man suggests that her roomate may have broken it.

    No, the tense is incorrect. "Being" is ungrammatical here. "Been" would be.

    Also, it's "by mistake", not "by a mistake".

    "A dormitory" sounds a little bit strange. Isn't it a specific dormitory?

    The woman has been charged by (there is no 'a') mistake for a broken closet door in a dormitory. The woman (?) suggests that her room-mate (US: roommate) may have broken it.

    Thank you so much for your response.

    Oops. Looks like I spend too much time fiddling with the colours. Somebody got there quicker.
