    totally different meanings.

    2.causing great harm/injury

    3.used to show the GREAT extent of sth bad

    eg.1.The meal was so terrible!How could the restaurant serve it to customers??

    eg.2.He was at the spot of that terrible traffic accident.

    eg.3.I feel terrible.I think I need to consult a doctor...

    'terrific'(adj.)=1.excellent/wonderful

    2.very large

    eg.1.She had done a terrific job and so her boss praised her in front of the others.

    eg.2.The police had found out that the driver was driving at a terrific speed.

    That was believed to be the cause of this terrible accident.
