hi all,
please tell me what's the difference in usage of these three verbs: "must", "should" and "need". which way is more convenient: - "he must do smth" / "it must to be done" / "i must do smth" - "he should do smth" / "it should be done" / "i should do smth" - "he needs to do smth" / "it needs to be done" / "i need to do smth"

thanks,
Alexey

I've responded to these already
[nq:1]- "he needs to do smth" / "it needs to be done" / "i need to do smth"[/nq]
A necessity
None of them have anything to do with convenience.
