    Question What's the difference?

    Q1. Would you tell me the difference between these sentences?

    I have yet been to the U.S.A.

    I have not been in U.S.A.



    Q2. What are the other uses of "yet" besides negative usage?


    Thanks in advance

    not a teacher

    I have yet to go to the U.S.A.

    I have not been to U.S.A.

    I think 1 is the same as 2 except that it indicates a interest and/or a likelihood of the person going to USA.
