    adj with "ed"

    Hi
    Bill's keen mind pleased all his teacher .
    Pleased is a verb or adj and why ?
    If "pleased" is an adj why there is no linking verb before the pleased?

    It's a verb in your sentence.

    'Pleased' is an adjective in 'All of Bill's teachers were pleased with his keen mind'.

    Not a teacher.

    In the original sentence, "teacher" should be plural.

    Is 'pleased' a verb or adjective?
    Please note the normal way to ask a question.
