1. He must be a doctor.
2. He has to be a doctor.
(Are both the same? Is #2 grammatical?)

  • English -

    Those may mean the same. But they both have two meanings. One is that it's obvious that he's a doctor. The other meaning is that he's forced to be a doctor.

    You'd need more information to be sure you have the correct meaning.
