1. Sita, by now is your confusion got over? Or are you still in doubt?
2. Sita, are you over your confusion now or are you still in doubt?
My friend says the second sentence is correct, To me the first also looks to be correct.
Please throw some light on it.
Thanks for guidance.

    Sentence 1 is an attempt at a present perfect, passive verb. But "is got over" isn't the correct form

    Active: Sita, have you gotten over your confusion? (present perfect)
    Passive: Sita, has your confusion been gotten over? (present perfect)

    Semeeran, don't use 'gotten' as in #3 if you aim to speak good British style English. 'Gotten' is fine in American English but it's considered wrong in British English. Use 'got'.
