  must have done表示“想必已经,一定是”,指对过去的事物或者状态一种逻辑推断或确有把握的推测。由于must not是“禁止”的意思,不表示推测,因此must have done仅限用于肯定式,它的否定式是can not have done 或 could not have done。在疑问句中同样也是如此,不用must提问。如:You must have misunderstood me because I didn't say anything like that. 你一定是误会我了,因为我没有说过那样的话。"The lecturer was a tall thin man." "Then it can't have been Dr Zhu because he is short and fat. It must have been Dr Zhang." “那个作报告的人又高又瘦。” “那么,他不可能是朱博士,因为他又矮又胖。他一定是张博士。”商务英语词汇%Sz+Fs$on

a5oV k9hS0  should have done表示根据事物的一般规律所做出的一般性的推断或推测,它的语气没有must have done强,把握也没有它大。如:They should have finished the work by now. 他们现在应该完成工作了。She should have arrived in Cairo by this time. 她现在应该到达开罗了。should have done还可以表示过去应该做或值得做的事情而没有做,常带有后悔,埋怨,不满,责备或惊奇等情绪。它的否定形式表示过去做了不该做的事情。must have done则没有这样的意思。如:You should have gone to see your grandpa last week. 你上星期应该去看望爷爷的。This wall shouldn't have been painted yellow. 这堵墙不应该漆成黄色。
