I came across this construction which is used in formal writings. Then, I read about passive infinitives. Here some examples.
There's so much to be done ( to be/get past parteciple)
The car was to have been delivered...( it means it should have been delivered but it wasn't)
MY question is this: if I'm correct, the latter is the passive form ( in a certain way) of the construction abovementioned (be + infinitive)but in this case is perfect infinitive.
I was wondering If I may say: "The car was to be delivered" (meaning it was supposed to be delivered) or this kinda construction does not exist?
"The car was to be delivered" / The car was delivered" ??
