    Re: Already/Yet

    Highlight here for the answer : I have yet to do it.

    Re: Already/Yet

    Of course, 'yet' is correct, because you haven't done it.

    Re: Already/Yet

    However, many get the answer wrong because of the unusual position in the sentence and the use of the infinitve. Glad you weren't fooled.

    Nearly half did. That's why examiners use it time and time again.

    Re: Already/Yet

    Chamroeun, if you look at the second post, it will tell you that 'yet' is correct. It's a trick question that is used in exams:

    I have already done it.

    I haven't done it yet.
    I have yet to do it.
    (These two sentences mean the same)
