    Hello Teachers,

    Could you please tell me if these sentences are correct?

    1) "You needn't have hurried."

    2) "You need have hurried."


    Thanks in advance.

    (not a professional teacher)

    1) "You needn't have hurried."

    2) "You need have hurried."


    I would say for (2)

    "You should have hurried"
    or

    "you ought to have hurried."
