Which is the right answer

Yesterday i had an exam and there was a question :
"what are the special foods (eaten - ate - eating) at the festival ''
I know that the right answer is eaten (passive) but i think that eating (as a noun) is right too.
Am i right?


  • No, @Ahmed_Ashraf, eating can only be used in an ACTIVE sense here.

    The construction is a shortened version of

    ...the special foods that are eaten

    So you can say

    Who are the special people eating at the festival?

    because it's a shorten version of

    ...the people who are eating
