yet = still ??? (有例題)

yet 與 still 在有比較級的句子中,中文意思為「更」,但兩者究竟有沒有差距?

Ex:

Zoe is strong but Jean is _____ stronger.

(A) ready (B)already (C)still (D) yet

正解為: (c)

若still = yet 為何不能用(D)呢?

Update:

感謝各位的回答。

帶再請教一下goldrabbit368

對於( yet 是表示在現時是不會發生的。)的這一句,不是很了解,

可否就以下例句,再次說明,感激。

以下是雅虎字典裡面的例句:

yet: (與比較級連用)更,益發

That job is yet more demanding.

那個工作甚至更加費力。

    Zoe is strong but Jean is still stronger.

    因為 Jean 是現在是比 Zoe 強壯,而且是持續下去的。

    ( If a situation that used to exist still exists, it has continued and exists now.)

    而 yet 是表示在現時是不會發生的。

    ( You use yet in negative statements to indicate that something has not happened up to the present time, although it probably will happen.)

    yet...... 與比較級連用 = 還要 ( 須要) ......

    That job is yet demanding. = 那個工作 還要 ( 須要) 費力。

    即現時所費的力度不足。

    所以

    Zoe is strong but Jean is yet stronger.-----------不合題意

    Zoe is strong but Jean is still stronger.

    題意是: Zoe 雖然是強壯 但 Jean 比 Zoe 還強壯。

    注意 : yet 是有負面的意思

    例如 :

    You must work yet harder.

    你工作還要加把勁。( 即現在你的工作還 未 夠 勁 )

    在這裡 Still是指"還是"的意思

    yet 跟 still 的差異在於:

    still 用在強調比較級,例如:

    It's hot today, but it'll be still hotter tomorrow. 今天很熱,但明天會更熱。

    yet 是與比較級連用,強調程度的增加,例如:

    That job is yet more demanding. 那個工作甚至更加費力。

    You use yet in negative statements to indicate that something has not happened up to the present time, although it probably will happen

    上面那一句英文的意思是:

    yet 用於否定句時的意思 = 還沒

    例:The moon has not risen yet.

    月亮還沒有升起。

    yet 用在比較級時:

    yet 是與比較級連用,強調程度的增加,例如:

    That job is yet more demanding. 那個工作甚至更加費力。

    這是兩個完全不同的意思!
