    All four are OK.

    1 and 3 are fine. 2 is incorrect. 4 is OK, but it would be more common in British English than in American English.

    3) Alex: I sometimes get fatigued, but I ignore it.
    Malleson: Then you __________you'll lose your powers of concentration.
    Order.
    Malleson: Then you must stop as you'll lose your powers of concentration.
    Malleson: Then you have to stop otherwise you'll lose your powers of concentration.
    1. I would use "or" instead of "as".
    2. This needs a semicolon or a period after "stop".

    The first would be a mild order or strong advice.
    The second would be advice.

    Advice.
    Malleson: Then you should stop as you'll lose your powers of concentration.
    Malleson: Then you ought to stop otherwise you'll lose your powers of concentration.
    Same corrections as above.

    Both are advice.

    4) Alex: I was going to play ping pong after studing, but I don't think I'll bother.
    Malleson: But you ________________ A change of activity is essential.
    Order.
    Malleson: But you have got to play, A change of activity is essential.
    Malleson: But you must play A change of activity is essential.
    1. It could also be "have to play". Put a period after "play".
    2. Place a period after "play".

    I wouldn't call either an order, in context. I would call it more "urging".

    Advice.
    Malleson: But you should play A change of activity is essential.
    Malleson: But you ought to play A change of activity is essential.
    Same periods.

    Both would be advice.
