‘Must’ is a modal verb. It has different meanings depending on how it is used. In this English lesson, you will take a look at some example sentences using ‘must’.

  • Example: I must finish the work before I leave. ( an obligation one imposes on himself)
  • Example: this must be the correct address. (shows certainty)
  • Example: You must visit the dentist. (a strong recommendation)

When ‘must’ is put in negative, it indicates prohibition of something.

There is no past form of ‘must’. ‘Had to’ is used.

  • Example: I had to wake up early.

When ‘must’ is used with a past participle verb, it means a past probability.

  • Example: They must have reached on time.

Must is also used as a noun, when you say something is a necessity.
