Dear native speakers,

In a grammar book I read that three tenses do not have passive forms. These tenses are: present perfect progressive, simple future progressive, and past perfect progressive. Is it true that we can't make the following tenses into passive?

Thanks.

What do you mean? I'm not a native speaker and may not be able to understand it!

You say you are an English teacher, you must be able to construct sentences using passive voice.
