The sentences are about a door and a diamond, however the door and the diamond don't do anything -- they passively receive the action. You can look up "passive voice" for more information.

Was this in reference to a story or just the sentences as they are presented here? If it is the latter, the only components a sentence truly needs to be correct in English, is a Noun and a Verb.

"The door is locked." This is a proper sentence, Door = noun, locked = verb. Locking it in the evening is just adding more detail, but still a sentence. The same applies to the next sentence, with Diamond = noun, and kept = verb.

Does this help?

I am not sure what "V3" is. For this sentence, "is" is a preposition that binds the noun (door) to the action (locked). If you remove "is", then the sentence becomes disconnected.

"The door locked in the evening." - Here it sounds as if the door locks itself, which (unless this is a fantasy novel or a new digital system), we all know to be untrue.

Thank you for helping me :)
That is just a sentence. I still confused why "is" in that sentence with V3? 
That reason why I choice incorrect answer. The problem for me why to be in the sentence using V3? 
Can you explain it again to me ? :)
