"Has been" instead of "was" should be also accepted

Interesting, is prohibiting placing 'already' at the end of the sentence deliberate here? There are mixed opinions about whether it is a colloquialism or a mistake.

I think we're going to allow it. Added now.

Can 'już' be placed before 'został'? That would match the English better (one wouldn't say 'Has this bicycle been already sold?').

It's accepted. However, according to the corpus, placing 'już' between 'zostać' and the passive adjectival participle is about three times more common.
