In the test question: Después de mucho uso, la vela de cera ____doblada. I used “es” vs “está” as a bent over candle seems to be a permanent condition. Wouldn’t “es” be correct in this sentence also? Thanks
If you are describing what state something is in, then use "estar". [I find that this can often provide a good guide].
The much-used candle is in a pretty "sorry state" !
