"The students may be affected by the recent bus crash." What is the part of speech of "affected"?

  • English -

    What if this said "are affected?" Would you know then how this is used?


  • English -

    My contention is that "affected" is a participle (a verb functioning as an adjective),describing the subject "students", and "be" is a linking verb.
