Kita bisa menggunakan modal "must" untuk menyatakan situasi berikut ini:

1. Keharusan mutlak

Dalam hal ini ‘must’ maknanya lebih kuat ketimbang ‘should’. Dengan menggunakan should, orang mempunyai pilihan: melakukan atau tidak; tapi dengan must, orang tidak punya pilihan.

  • Setiawan must call his boss today (Setiawan harus menelepon bossnya hari ini)= it is necessary for Setiawan to call his boss today.
  • A car must have gasoline to run (Mobil harus punya bensin untuk bisa berjalan) = it is obligatory for car to have gasoline to run.

2. Kesimpulan logis

Must digunakan untuk menyatakan bahwa si pembicara menganggap sesuatu itu benar adanya berdasarkan fakta yang ada tapi kebenaran ini tidak harus mutlak.

  • Rudy’s lights are out. He must be a sleep. (Lampu Rudi mati. Dia pasti sedang tidur.)
  • The grass is wet. It must be raining. (Rerumputan basah. Itu pasti hujan.)
