ought to

Please give me more examples of using ought to. I really don't know when to use it.

I completed this excersize without errors, but I am not satisfied, because of the above modal verb.

Thanks

Ought to

When we want to recommend something or give someone some advice we can use ought to.

"You ought to try the fish, it's delicious."

In this sentence ought to can be changed to should and the meaning remains the same.
