    Use of ''yet'' in reported questions

    Hello to all of you.
    I have some doubts concerning reported questions. The direct question was:

    "Have you had your dinner yet?", she is asking her son.

    Will you, please, help me decide which one is correct:

    a) She is asking her son if he has had his dinner yet.
    or
    b) She is asking her son if he has
    already had his dinner.

    I'm looking forward to your reply.
