beginning with baby steps

to leave a place : wyjść, pójść (both perfective) the second is commonly used in questions of the time 'has he left yet?'

to leave (something somewhere) : zostawić / zostawiać (perfective form first cause that's the base form)

to be left, to remain : pozostawiać (most always imperfective)

to leave (abandon) sth : opuścić / opuszczać (again perfective first)

zostać is either stay (in a place) zostać w domu (stay at home) or become (with instrumental) zostać żołnierzem (to become a soldier)

to be left, to remain : pozostawiać

Shoudn't be "pozostawać" ?

How much left? Ile (po)zostało?

zostać is either stay (in a place) zostać w domu (stay at home) or become (with instrumental) zostać żołnierzem (to become a soldier)

there is also this construction - like say - został pochowany - he was burried (interred) but also został przysypany skałami - he got/was burried by/under rocks (say some caver/speleologist)
