    This calls for you to be alert=this requires you to be alert=this requires that you b

    Hello everybody!

    Does "This calls for you to be alert" equal "This requires you to be alert" or "This requires that you (should) be alert?

    I think so, but what do you think?

    Thank you.

    In my opinion, "calls for" is not as strong as "requires".
