His stall is opened / open every every morning. ( The word 'opened' is not correctly used here.)

His stall is opened by him every morning is fine.

Once his stall is opened by him, his stall is open. (not opened)

Hi Feebs,

Please allow me to ask this question because I am curious. In your reply, you used "opened" passively as a verb and also used "open" as adjective. And I agree with your opinion. I understand your perspective because that's how I understand it. However, on this forum there were few experts whose had disapproving views in the past that it's incorrect if you say "the new supermarket has been opened for business for 2 weeks". The disagreement was on the word "opened" being passive which was deemed incorrect, and the correct word should be "open". How do you see it? Thanks in advance.
His stall is opened every morning > passive and quite normally used.

His stall is open every morning > descriptive and equally normally used.

Hi Feebs,

As I said, I understand how you see it. My question was about the correctness or the incorrectness of "His stall is opened everyday" as proposed by others. This is just to clear my curiosity.

(e) When she reached the seaside, she saw many activities such as a volleyball match and a swimming contest. She joined the voleyball team and won the match.

Is that correct?

Yes, that's better, VT.
His stall is opened every morning. ( The word 'opened' is, IMO, not correctly used because it is a verb.)

His stall is opened by the owner/ the owner's assistant, etc every morning. (This sentence is fine as there is a subject, the doer.)

Once his stall is opened by the owner, his stall is open. (here 'open' is an adjective)

His stall is open every morning. (Here the adjective 'open' means 'not closed')
