Past continuous - passive voice
The past continuous passive is made with the past simple form of the verb to be (was, were) + being + the past participle of a verb (asked, replaced / beaten, thrown).
I didn't understand why I was being asked.
The wheels on my car were just being replaced when I arrived at the tire service.
The Red Lions were being beaten at the beginning of the match.
We make questions in the past continuous passive by changing the word order of a statement.
Why was I being asked? I didn't understand that.
When were the wheels on your car being replaced?
Were the Red Lions being beaten at the beginning of the match?
The negative forms are made by adding 'not' after the verb to be.
I didn't understand why I was not being asked.
The wheels on my car were not being replaced when I arrived at the tire service.
The Red Lions were not being beaten at the beginning of the match.
