    Re: I have a question

    Hard to comment when we don't know the context, but it's used in this type of sentence.............

    "They say she's got a really nice personality, but I've yet to see it!"

    "He's supposed to be clever, but I've yet to see it."

    You use it to show you're a bit doubtful about what someone or something is made out to be and you're waiting for some evidence to convince you.

    Hope this helps

    It means 'I haven't seen it (yet).'
