    The original being

    The original is being sent at your Delhi office address.

    Is the above sentence correct?

    If correct, would like to know why we have used "sent" not "send"? Which tense is this?


    Thanks
    Anil

    Re: The original being

    It's the passive voice of the present continuous tense.
    "I send the letter. The letter is sent. I'm sending the letter. The letter is being sent."
