As long as you still have the qualifying relationship with the principal asylee and the principal asylee's asylum status has not been terminated, you would be eligible to adjust status. More here: https://www.uscis.gov/policymanual/Print/PolicyManual-Volume7-PartM-Chapter2.html

If im a derivative asyle and pricipal asyle apllied for his green card aftr 2momts and uscis sends a letter saying request for more evidence to pricipal asyle.wil it affect my green card processing time?wil i get t green card ?

You can qualify for the green card even if the principal asylee does not receive his/her green card first. As long as the principal asylee still meets the definition of an asylee and you still have the qualifying relationship, yours will be looked at independently.
