Why WAS? Why not HAVE? Any idea, please let me know.

Abhi said: (Nov 3, 2014)  
There should be HAS BEEN despite of was.

As the first statement is in present the passive should be in accordance with it.

B. In knowing that.

C. The project has completed.

Why "project was completed"? Why not "project completed"?

Scott said: (Sep 15, 2015)  
I think it should be"the project has completed".

Balveer said: (Dec 2, 2016)  
I think "has" is right because the project is just completed.

@Abhi.

Why to use a passive voice?
