Hello,

It may be helpful to you to know that by going direct to the forums at www.english-test.net/forum/, you can ask questions which are unrelated to test questions directly.

Why does this question finish with 'yet'?
'Has John succeeded in finding a job yet?'


'Yet' means 'so far' or 'by now'.
The questioner is asking whether John has succeeded in getting a job up to the time of asking.
'Has John succeeded in finding a job?' is also correct without 'yet'. The 'yet' emphasises how long John's search for a job has taken.
