Hello,

I wonder if the following is grammatically correct.

A: Where did all of my wine bottles go?

B: All the wine has been drunk.

I'm not sure if this should be 'drunk' or 'drank.'


Likewise, if I were to also say, "All the food has been eaten," is that also correct?

    Drank would be incorrect. Drunk is fine, as is eaten in the case of food. You could also use consumed, especially if you wanted to avoid confusion with drunk=intoxicated.

    There was a bottle of wine standing on the floor, and someone accidentally kicked it over. "Look, the wine is drunk. It's rolling around on the floor!"
