    Question/ past perfect
    Message from saraserenity posted on 05-02-2021 at 18:37:37 (D | E | F)
    Hello,
    In the first sentence " when I went to the car park, I found that my car had been stolen".
    why did you use "been" with past perfect?
    Thanks for any reply.

    Hello

    The verb is in the passive voice :
    Link


    I found that my car had been stolen (passive voice) = I found that somebody had stolen my car (active voice).
