Still, yet, already exercise


STILL: Use still to mean that something is taking longer than expected. For this reason it is often used to express surprise. Note that still is placed before the auxiliary verb have in the present perfect (i.e. I still haven’t found the answer). However, when used with the Present Continuous it is placed between the auxiliary and the main verb (i.e. I am still looking for my phone).
Example: She still hasn’t returned the book I gave her.

YET: Use yet to mean until now or up to this moment in time. Yet can only be used in questions and negatives. It is always placed at the end of the sentence or question.
Example: Have you done your homework yet? No, I haven’t done it yet.

ALREADY: Use already to say that something is finished or happened earlier than expected. Note that already is placed before the main verb (i.e. have already done)
Example: I don’t what anything to eat. I’ve already eaten.
