Mengekspresikan kewajiban atau keharusan (expressing necessity) bisa menggunakan modals: must, need to, have to, dan have got to. Must cenderung digunakan pada situasi formal dan mengindikasikan bahwa sesuatu benar-benar wajib dilakukan. Sedangkan have dan have got to lebih sering digunakan pada situasi informal.
