    Question How should I say it correctly?

    Hello,


    Can I say the following sentence in passive?

    To whom do the records belong? - To whom are the records belonged?


    I have tried deduce it. Such as:

    Somebody has records.
    Record belong to somebody.
    Records are belonged to somebody.
    Are the records belonged to somebody?
    To whom are the records belonged?


    Are the last three sentences too complicated?


    Thank you very much!

    'Are belonged' is wrong. You only say:
    The records belonged to somebody.

    To whom do the records belong?

    not a teacher

    The records belong to somebody. present, general
    The records belonged to somebody. past

    tedtmc was pointing out that you cannot say, "The records are belonged.
