    Question ought to and should ?

    Hello everybody, I have a question which I'm confused.
    Could anyone please explain to me between "ought to" and "should"?
    Are they used in the same way or different?
    Thank you in advance.

    They're used in the same way. Because the negative and question forms are more difficult to say, 'ought to' is less common in these forms.
