    used is an transitive verb (has both a subject and a noun) and I think mystery is a helping verb

    Actually no mystery is a linking verb because it doesn't really have an action

    I just want to say that @MathBlonde is correct, used is an transitive verb and mystery is a linking verb . :)

    And the second one is a linking verb because "remains" connects with the word mystery , which describes or tells what the case is. "The case is a mystery."
