In the topic helping verbs class 9, the second example given is -"The boy is punished by the teacher ".I think it should be -The boy is being punished by the teacher or The boy was punished by the teacher.Will someone please clarify my doubt?????????

'The boy is punished by the teacher' is a grammatically correct sentence. It means, the boy is habitually punished by the teacher. The sentence sounds a bit odd because we do not use it in regular speech.
