Student or Learner
The .......... event did not occur.
I'll go for "EXPECTED." because "the event was expected (by members)."
but then this was questioned why it can't be "expecting" since the EVENT was the "CAUSE," as "present participle adjectives" are used when a person or a thing is responsible for doing an action or causing a feeling while "past participle adjectives" are "RECEIVER" while being used to describe a person or a thing receives an action or feeling.
frightening movie / frightened moviegoers
shocking news / shocked listeners ...etc
"That's an amazing story." instead of "That's an amazed story."
Can you help me out and why it can't be "expecting?"
Thank you so much!!
