Must vs have to :
Both Must and have to communicate commitment or need, yet there are some little contrasts:
• Must communicates the speaker’s emotions, though have to communicates, most importantly, an indifferent thought:
You must come. You are obliged to come (I necessitate that you come)
You have to come. You are obliged to come. (There’s a standard expecting you to come)
Must I wear this tie? Am I obliged to wear this tie? (What do you think?)
Do I have to wear this tie? Am I obliged to wear this tie? (Is there a standard about ties?)
• Have to for the most part communicates general commitments, while must is utilized for explicit commitments:
I have to brush my teeth two times every day.
I must disclose to you something.
Note: To communicate commitment, obligation or need later on or the past, must and have are not utilized. They are supplanted by need to:
We must (need to) purchase another ticket.
We had to purchase another ticket yesterday.
We’ll have to purchase another ticket later.
In any case, in their negative structures, mustn’t and don’t have to have totally various implications:
• Mustn’t communicates preclusion
You mustn’t drive. You are restricted to drive. You are not permitted to drive.
• Don’t have to communicates the nonattendance of commitment or need:
You don’t have to drive. You are not obliged to drive (however you can on the off chance that you need to).
