    Default Are you finished yet ?

    Dear Teachers,

    1) They have the same meaning
    2) They’re the same meaning

    Which sentence is grammatically right ?

    1) Are you finished yet ?
    2) Have you finished yet ?

    Which sentence is grammatically right ?

    Thanks a lot and hope to receive your reply soon.

    Best regards.

    Tuan Nguyen Manh ( Mr).

    They are both fine. The present perfect is the standard version, but colloquially you will hear both being used. I wouldn't use the first in a formal context, though.
