GATE | GATE CS Mock 2018 | Question 2

I haven’t worked as a mechanic before, ________ I’ve been fixing cars since I was a child.
(A) always
(B) yet
(C) no longer
(D) already


Answer: (B)

Explanation: Always is an adverb of frequency, like never, often, frequently, and usually.
Yet is a conjunction meaning nevertheless or however. Yet usually carries a sense of negation, so and yet means the same thing as but still.
No longer means not now as formerly; not any more.
We use already to show that something has happened sooner than it was expected to happen.

Therefore, “yet” is most appropriate choice here.
Option (B) is correct.
