    the structures you mentioned are usually used when you want to say something like "should" or "be supposed to"

    Examples:
    1) What am I to tell my father when he finds out? (what should I tell him?)

    2) He is more to be pitied than feared.

    It is to be done or; (it should be done or is supposed to be done)
    It is to be determined; (it should be determined)
    It has to be achieved and so on
