Is it possible?
 
Is it alright to say "I have worked here since 2 years ago" Do native-speakers say it?
What s the difference between: Luggage and Baggage?
The question for: He has got blue eyes = Has he got blue eyes? (Is this the correct question)/ How about the short answer: Yes, he has or Yes he does?

Hi Monica, No, you can t say I have worked here since two years ago"....it s either
I have worked here for two years.
or
I started working here two years ago.
"two years ago" is a PAST time expression, and you can t use the Present Perfect with it. No native speaker would use it.

If the question is "Has he got blue eyes?" the short answer would be "yes he has".

Hope this helps...

1: Present perfect tense:
since + a specific date (e.g since 2007)   for + a period of time (e.g.   for 2 years)
    Past simple tense: ago (e.g. I went to Italy 2 years ago.)

2: Luggage
( mainly US baggage)

3:  He has got bue eyes: Has he got blue eyes? Yes, he has
     He has blue eyes: Does he have blue eyes? Yes, he does.

Luggage and baggage are synonyms when they refer to:
- all the cases and bags that you take with you when you travel

Baggage, however can also be used as:
- the beliefs and feelings that you have which influence how you think and behave
e.g. We all carry a lot of emotional baggage (NOT: luggage) around with us.
