Hi everyone!!

I have an easy question about the use of being. I read on MGMAT sentence correction that when i find being in the answer choice i should avoid that answer, and rarely being is used correctly.
The correct use of BEING will help me more on the real life than for the GMAT!!! :-D

In what situation I should use BEING and when I should use BE?

Being is almost incorrect when used as a modifier.
For example,
Being the last to arrive, he was not welcome.
But being is passive voice is often correct on the GMAT
e.g: the crime scene is being tested by the forensic experts.

These are GMAT specific rules ONLY!
