What is the difference between must and should?

Jitendra said: (Sep 20, 2011)  
Must is used for compulsion but necessary has already used as a compulsion in first part, so it will not repeat.

What is the difference between will and shall?

According to subjunctive mood, "have a house".

Indefinite pronouns always take a singular form of verb.

So instead of "have", there will be "has".

I agree @Shane.

Prashanthi said: (Mar 18, 2018)  
Both "should" and "must" are similar in meaning except that "must" is a much stronger word as compared to "should".

Anu said: (Jun 23, 2020)  
If everybody is in a sentence it represents singular so we have to use has.

Is it right? Can anyone explain?

Devang said: (Jul 9, 2020)  
Yes @Anu.

Because things like everybody, nobody always takes a singular verb so it is "has" not "have".
