Hi, I'd like to know how many of those different continuous tenses are no longer used by modern native speakers when it comes to passive voice.

Thank you
Hi,

You are unlikely to hear 3, 4, 5.

Hi.

As Clive explained. Perfect continuous tenses are not expressed in passive as you did.

If you want to change perfect continuous sentences into passive, you have to express them in the same way you do for simple perfect ones.

Ex. I have been washing my car. My car has been washed.

He didn't say that. He said we are unlikely too hear them.

They can be, and are, used, but not often.

Why would anybody want to express that other than in the active voice?
