Recently I was going through a grammar exercise book and I found these two peculiar sentences in a section about passive usage:
"What would you most recent been told? I would most recent being told that I was a fool."
The book is "Advances English Practice" by B.D. Graver. Now, I've been studying English for quite some time and this is the first time I've come across such oddly structured sentences. The modals and the passive verbs sound out of place. In fact, I'm not even sure what they mean but I would rephrase them as:
"What have you been told most recently? I've been told that I was a fool."
Am i right? And if so, could someone explain this use in greater detail?
