    The work is done.

    Somebody has opened the door. The door is open.
    Somebody has closed the door. The door is closed.
    Somebody has done the work. The work is done.

    If I'm not mistaken, in the first sentence, "open" is an adjective, and the sentence is NOT in the passive voice. If it's right, can I say that "closed" and "done", in the second and third sentences (The door is closed/The work is done), are also adjectives?
