    Post Confusion between (Complete / Completed) / (Agree / Agreed)

    Hello All,

    I have a confusion between when to use what between (Completed / Complete) / (Agree/Agree)

    Let me know which one is correct and if we can use any of them and let me know what is difference between these two

    1) This activity is completed. 2) This activity is complete.
    1) I agree. 2) I agreed.
    1) This is confirm. 2) This is confirmed.

    1) This activity is completed.

    2) This activity is complete.

    1) I agree. Present tense.
    2) I agreed. Past tense.
    1) This is confirm.
    2) This is confirmed.

    Why this is (This activity is completed. ) wrong.

    and
    why this is (This is confirmed.) correct.

    I think you will actually find plenty of people who use "completed" as an adjective so, although I wouldn't use it, I would say that "This activity is completed" is just about acceptable. I would use "This activity has been completed" though.

    I wouldn't expect to hear "This is confirmed" on its own. Perhaps "We can all make 2nd June. The date is confirmed."
