    to have become

    Relations with Mr Putin were thought to have become strained but ultimately Moscow gave him sanctuary

    Is it right description as a part of speech of word seen below?

    to have - infinitive
    become - noun
    strained
    - adjective

    Hello, Vaibhavmaskar.

    'to have become (=to have + past participle)' is called "the perfect infinitive".
    In this case, 'become' is the past participle of the verb 'become'. It's not a noun.

    I hope my response will be of some help to you.

    You've done nothing wrong.
    You don't have to say/feel sorry.
