    Smile the meaning of the sentence

    Hello

    I'd like to know the meaning of the following sentence.

    #1) He hasn't done his homework yet.

    Can I use #1) when he has started his homework and hasn't finished ?
    Or does #1) mean he hasn't started his homework?

    Thank you.

    Re: the meaning of the sentence

    1) He hasn't done his homework yet.
    => He hasn't started it.
    Compare: He didn't do it.

    Note, some speakers might use "hasn't done" to mean hasn't completed,

    EX: He hasn't done/completed his homework yet.
