    Not approve yet vs not approved yet

    Dear teachers and friends,

    How are you doing? I hope everything went well there. I have a quick question here. What is different between:

    1.Not approve yet
    2.Not approved yet

    Thanks in advance. Your advise in this matter would be highly appreciated.

    Re: Not approve yet vs not approved yet

    Please give a complete sentence to illustrate how you want to use these phrases.

    Note: advice (noun), advise (verb).

    The first phrase is not usable. The second could be, if incorporated within a sentence.
    "It is not approved yet" is a correct sentence.

    NOT A TEACHER!

    I tried to make sense of "not approve yet," but I cannot come up with one idea!
    I heard that you cannot use "present tense" if you use "yet."

    However, I can see many usages for "not approved yet."
