Which sentence is correct :
" You know nothing has been moved since you were sent away cured"
or " You know nothing moved since you were sent away to be cured"
Here's another,
"The statue was broken while it was being moved to another room"
or "The statue broke while it was being moved to another room"
This sentence "People can continue to enjoy the game" can be rewritten as
" The game can continue to be enjoyed"
or "The game can be continued to be enjoyed"
And please explain to me as clearly as you can!

OK and now I get what you mean Beee. The reason why there is a repetition is ... I don't know, Here is the whole thing: I did post this post ( post this post ???) first, but somehow it didn't appear on the forum so I thought I might have cancel the page before I had post in. And as a result, I posted another one! =( !!! I did not mean to do such thing like this. It's really stupid and time-wasting!

Can you explain to me why both the first and the second sentences are correct, especially the bold and underline part!
