Interested in Language
Generally, when people have completed a work or task, they say "It is done".
"It is done" is the passive form of "I do it".
I feel that the people have to say "It has been done".Because "It has been done" is
the possive form of "I have done it", I expect poeple to use "It has been done".
Why do people use "It is done" instead of using "It has been done"? Please clarify.
Like "It is done" People use "is + past participle" in many cases to refer completed actions.

If "It is done" means the task is in a completed state, then the "done" in "It is done" is considered as an adjective?
