    True, because they both express an obligation.

    It is incorrect because you can’t use “have” with third person singular you use “has”

    1. “Must” and “have to” have the same meaning.
    False, they have a different meaning.
    “Must” is an obligation, and “have to” is a necessity.

    4. The sentence “I doesn’t have to study” is incorrect.

    True, its incorrect because we can’t use “doesn’t” if we use the first person (I), the only way we can use “doesn’t” is if we use the third person (he, she, it). If we want to use the first person we have to use “don’t”.

  5. 3. The sentence “She have to study for the test” is correct.

    It’s false because when we use “have to” with he/she/it, we have got to change the “have” for a “has”, or it would not be correct. Same thing happens witht he negative form. Instead of using “don’t” we use “doesn’t”

    • Good work! Majo! 🙂

      A few corrections though:

    2). It is true because you can’t say ¨they musn`t to work¨because after musnt or must you have to put a verb.

    • Good try Anto, but your explanation is incorrect; “to work” is a verb!

      Besides there are mistakes:

      It is true because you can’t say “they mustn’t” to work because after “mustn’t” or “must” you have to put a verb.

    The sentences doesn’t mean the same because when you use ” must not” is something that is prohibited to do, and “don’t have to” is when you are not required to do something.

    • Good try Cami! 🙂

      Some corrections:

      The sentences don’t mean the same because when you use “must not”[,] it is something that is prohibited to do, and “don’t have to” is used when you are not required to do something.

    The sentence is incorrect because when you are going to use negative statements and what you want to use in the sentence is “do not” and your subject is “I” you must use “don’t” not “doesn’t”

    • Good try but no Tati! Sorry! 😦

      You are saying that when you use “don’t”, you use “I”; on the contrary, it is “I” which determines that you use “don’t”. See Paloma’s explanation!

  10. False, because when you use Must is an obligation but when you use “dont have to” it’s saying its prefere not to do it but it’s your choice if you do it or not.

    • Good try Majito!

      It is not exactly that you have a choice. It is that you don’t need to do something!

      Some corrections:

      False, because when you use must is an obligation but when you use “don’t have to” it’s saying you prefer not to do it but it’s your choice if you do it or not.

    False, because when you use “musn’t” you are talking about a strict prohibition but when you are using “don’t have to” you are talking about something that its not necessary to do

    2.True because you must use in the sentence “they must to work” “they have to work”

  13. Valentina Bustamante

     /  February 23, 2015

    True
    They’re both an obligation, but when it’s negative mustn’t it’s a prohibition and have not it’s not necessary.

    2) True, because we use “to” after “must”. An because “must” is use in writing.

    True. It is incorrect because you must write the base form of a verb after the modal verb “must”.

  16. 4 : True because we use don’t with: I, You, We & they . And we use doesn’t with : He, She & It

    • Very good answer Paloma! Remember to use quotations with “don’t” and “doesn’t” so it is clear you are talking about them as auxiliaries and they are not part of the sentence.

    • Good try Mapusa! Short but clear explanation; however, there are some mistakes.

      It is true because when we use “I”[,] we don´t use “doesn’t” but “don’t”

    • Good Mari! 🙂 Just a few corrections.

      False because when we use “he”, she or “it”, we use “has” not “have” and “there” they are using “she” so it’s wrong because it has to be “has” not “have”
