If present tense is being used then why is "ed" being used in the example given below??????????In the topic helping verbs class 9, the second example given is -"The boy is punished by the teacher ".

Dear Student,

The verb has an 'ed' because the sentence is in the passive voice.

A verb can have 'ed' and yet be in the present tense, because the helping verb('is' punished)  is in the present tense.
