    A couple of questions

    Hi guys,

    I think these questions are silly but I am thinking about these things and It's getting worse .

    He was finished... / he finished...

    and

    I have lived... / I have been lived...

    Like these examples verbs can be different. Sometimes I am confused about that what's the difference ,and when should I use was/were or been.


    Thank you.

    No serious questions are silly.

    He was finished...

    He was exhausted. He could do no more. Or, in another context, his career was destroyed.


    he finished...

    He completed his task

    and

    I have lived...

    OK, no problem.

    I have been lived...

    Impossible. This meaningless construction does not exist.

    Thank you.
