"You must study hard."

This is a sentence with auxilliary verb. We use auxilliary verb to describe the feeling of speaker. And it expresses our feelings clearly.

"I must go home before dark."

The action is not happend yet. It's meaning is "I have to go home early."

Form: must + root
I must go there.
you must get up early.

We usually use it when we have to follow someone's order. The meaning "You must study hard." is that I didn't study hard before but I will study hard from now on. Because someone wants for me to study hard.

Evaluations with nouns [(not) enough]

I made two sentences myself.

ex1)"There aren't enough clothes in my closet"

This is a sentence with evaluations with nouns. We use '(not) enough'.
It means my closet's space is enough, and I don't have many clothes.

ex2)"There isn't enough time to take a nap."

Meaning of this sentence is someone doesn't have a lot of time to take a nap.

Form = There is/are + not enough + noun(s) [countable noun(s)/ uncountable noun]

1)Uncountable noun:

There is not enough time.

There is not enough money.

2)Countable noun(s):

There are not enough dishes.

There are not enough clothes.

PS- Really thank you for your understanding about my situation. Thank you!!^^
