    Pat: Is it possible to get the rate increased?
    Max: No problem. I'll increase it for you now. Just a moment.
    Pat: Great. So, what's this amount here, then?
    Max: That's value for the rate we just increased.
    Pat: The rate is already increased?
    Max: Yup. It is now increased. (State of being)
    Pat: When did that happen?
    Max: Just now. It was increased by the computer software. (Passive)
