Pengertian dan Contoh Kalimat be Supposed to

Pengertian Be Supposed to

Be supposed (to infinitive) berarti diharapkan untuk melakukan atau menjadi sesuatu (to be expected to do/be something), khususnya berdasarkan hukum (law), peraturan (rule), perjanjian (agreement), atau orang yang berkuasa (someone in authority).

Namun demikian pada prakteknya mungkin sesuatu tersebut tidak dilakukan. Be supposed + infinitive dapat diartikan should.

Pada past tense, be (was/were) supposed + infinitive ini berarti sesuatu diharapkan atau diniatkan terjadi namun pada kenyataannya tidak demikian. Should have dapat digunakan sebagai alternatif struktur ini.
