    The first is not correct. Someone has done [active] the task. The task has been done [passive] (by someone).

    Re: Query related to Tense

    A task is considered an object. Someone does a/the task.

    1. A/The task is done (by someone). (present tense)
    3. A/The task has been done. (present perfect tense)
