Can anyone help me? I'm confused whether or not my answer is correct.

Passed away(colloquial)-Died(formal)

Shouldn't it be deceased?

Thanks in advance.

The formal word of passed away, sorry I forgot to emphasize it.

Shouldn't it be deceased?

No. Deceased is an adjective.

anonymousPassed away(colloquial)

"passed away" is euphemistic rather than colloquial.
