    Default How can I say this?

    If my mother, for example, tell me that someone should take some pictures during a party, how could she say?

    1) You have got to have the pictures taken by your sister during the party.
    2) You have got to let your sister take some pictures during the party.
    3) You have got to make your sister take some pictures during the party.

    Which one is correct? Are they all correct and have a different meaning?
    Thanks so much for your help.

    They are all correct.
    1) means that you must have all the pictures taken by your sister.
    2) means that you must allow your sister to take some of the pictures.
    3) means that you have to force your sister to take some pictures.
