Question Exercise 12-1

This exercise is about passive participles. There is one exercise in particular that I did not understand. I will copy two of the sentences and explain why I am confused by them together....

10) Dudo que la computadora haya sido puesto en la oficina por ellos.
12) Ojalá los artículos que necesito hayan sido impresos por ti.

It's #10 that I don't understand. In #12, the participle matches the subject (impresos --> artículos). But in #10 the participle does NOT match the subject (puesto --/--> la computadora).

Why???

I believe the author made a mistake. It should be "puesta".
