    Passive voice classification

    Respectable teachers,

    Could anyone pleae explain, how the passive voice is categorized?

    Ex: I am asked -> Passive present tense
    I have been asked -> Passive perfect

    I am being asked. How this sentence is classified? Shall we say this as passive gerund?

    Thanks
