    Lightbulb Negative form

    Hello,

    Should I say

    "I did not answer your question yet" or
    "I have not answer you question yet" ?

    What is the rule ?

    Thank you

    "I have not answered your question yet."

    The rule is (in BrE) we use 'yet' with the present perfect in this kind of sentence.
