QUESTION: 1

Directions (1 – 24): In each of the following sentences, there is a missing word or phrase. From the four selections given, you are required to encircle the word or phrase that best completes the sentence.

Q.

In am glad that you want to be a lawyer. I hope you know that you must ______ very hard for years.

Solution:

We use "must have", "can't have" and "might have" in the same way as the present perfect - the action we are describing happened, or did not happen, in the past and is still true in the present. "must have": we believe the action definitely happened. "She must have left the house by now; it's nearly 11 o'clock."
But must and have to cannot be used together. If we are using must to talk about obligations, then we can't use it with have to. In other words, we cannot use must to make have to more emphatic.
