    have finished vs. finished

    Hi,

    1. Are you finished?
    2. Have you finished?

    Do they mean the same?

    Thanks.

    Re: have finished vs. finished

    I believe that past participles of all verbs cannot be used like how 'finished' is used in the original post but some others can be, e.g., 'done'. Could you please list the other similar verbs?
