    Default passive...

    Dear Teacher...

    I put a wrong question a few minutes ago.

    The right question is : "This problem is answered by nobody'"

    The above sentence is wrong?
    If so, I'd like to know the reason...

    Best regards...

    I didn't see the original or the context, but this one looks fine to me, Nautes. I might have written 'has been answered', but your grammar is correct out of context.

    Default Do you think so?

    You mean "The problem was solved by nobody."is correct?
