When you click to read a Yahoo news article, the URL is suffixed with .html

Why Yahoo does not opt for pretty URLs instead?
Is .html URL suffixing better for SEO?

.html and seo-url/ both looks same for search engines as I know,if them both readable by human.

Example :

my-seo-url.html

my-seo-url/

my-seo-url

Here is a nice article to read.

No. It makes no difference. On the contrary, one could argue that shorter and cleaner urls are better than adding the file extension like in this case.

This is the same thing that Google says in this vlog.
