or

2) Have you meet them?

I message my brother to ask him to meet my parents in a shopping mall first. So I message him, "Have you met them?" Is this question correct?

He replied me say my grammar error, should be 'meet them' because it it not past yet.

But I was skeptical.

You are right to be skeptical. Your brother is wrong.

I met them. -- simple past.
I have met them -- present pefect.

Did you meet them? -- question form of simple past.
Have you met them? -- question form of present perfect.
"Have you met them?" is the correct one because you use past participles (meet, met, met - it's the third one) in the present perfect tense. Emotion: smile

Certainly you are skeptical, because you had to send message : Did you meet with them at shopping mall? If yes please inform me of having done so.

Are you suggesting the original poster was wrong?
Why do we use present perfect in my case?

Your originally poster is not completely wrong. But your brother sense did not allude to proper grammer error. It is your brother majesty either he says wrong or right.

I'm sorry, I don't understand this. Can you say it another way?

Have you studied the present perfect? Do you understand the difference between simple past and present perfect, and when you would use each one?

What is the difference to you in:
Did you meet them?
Have you met them?

Does your idea change if you add "yet"? Have you met them yet?
