    Cool The word "completed" is used as an adjective here?

    The word "completed" is used as an adjective here?


    e.g.
    The task is completed.
    The task is complete.
    The task has been completed.
    If we use modifier,
    1. The task is very completed?
    2. The task seems completed(Adjective).
    Also,
    1.The task is very complete.(Adjective).
    2. The task seems to be complete.(Adjective).
    If you see the word “Complete“in any dictionary, its you can find out “complete’ is an adjective, but completed is not.
    I guess the first and third sentences are passive voice, because
    If you add “by someone”,then it sounds passive.
    The task is completed (by someone).
    The task has been completed(by someone).


    What is the correct answer??

    What is the correct answer?? The correct answer to which question?!
    For a start, we never say "very complete". A task has either been completed or it hasn't. Something is either complete or it's not.

    Dear sir, I think he wanted to know the deference of meanings between the two kinds of sentences used as verbs and adjectives....

    Can we use 'kind' 'sort', 'type' as the same?
