    Future Continuous Passive

    All the books about English Grammar I have say that normally Future Continuous Passive is not used, instead we use Future Simple Passive, but is it possible to say: Your tests will be being tested when you come tomorrow at 5 o'clock.

    Re: Future Continuous Passive

    There's nothing wrong with it, but we do generally try to avoid it because of the two forms of the verb 'be' directly next to each other.

    Thank you very much for your reply. But if we do avoid using the verb "to be" directly after each other, what about am being, is being and so on...? And one more question: Can we say: I have very many friends.
    very many as I think sounds strange. I heard so many, but I have never heard very many.
