    It would help us be able to read your questions if you hit the Enter key after each line ... like this:

    1.He gets killed
    2. I will get it done
    3 gas gets over.
    could i know the grammatical aspect here ? I mean get/gets followed by a participle .what form of a sentence construction etc


    It would be better if you avoid using the verb "get" whenever you can and use a better verb.

    1. He has been killed.

    2. I will do the job.

    3. Gas is over $3.00 a gallon.

    There are many possibilities, depending on the context of the sentence. Read through some of these so you can begin to sort out the differences:

    Overall, my suggestion still is that you work hard NOT to use any form of the verb "get" unless there's no other way to say what you mean.
