    complete or completed

    Hi again!

    I quote from Cambridge Online Dictionary:

    "Complete: Whole, with all the parts

    the complete works of Oscar Wilde




    The report comes complete with (= including) diagrams and colourphotographs.

    Sun, sand, and romance - her holiday was complete."

    In that sense, if I want to ask if a project is finished, is it wrong to say :"Is the project complete?"
    Can I say:"Is the project completed?" to mean "finished"?

    Re: complete or completed

    Yes - you can use either. I prefer 'Is the project complete?' or 'Has the project been completed?'
