I want to know the diffrences between should & ought to and also shouldn't & ought not to. which one is stronger?
I know that we use should & shouldn't for giving advice but which one is stronger should or shouldn't?
Hi. 'Should' and 'ought to' mean the same. Neither is stronger. 'Should' is more common.

My advice to learners is that when they see or hear should and ought to, think of them as having the same meaning. Howeve, use only should. There are times when it is possible to use should, but not ought to.
