"Lazım "  is more like "Need" , "there is need".

Gitmem lazım  ---> I need to go [ Literally ; there is a need of  my going]

"Gitmem gerekiyor " can mean " I need to go " or " I should go"

gerekmek --> it is necessary, it is needed

Gitmeliyim  can mean " I should go" , " I must go" and suprisingly " I need to go ! "[according to context ]

My attempt for 

4. The bus has just gone.

Otobüs biraz önce gitti.

Otobüs henüz gitti.

Otobüs şimdi gitti.

Are all 3 answers equally correct, or would any of them not be used?

Thanks again Tunci, these exercises are very useful and I´m sure they are appreciated by all the learners. It makes us think, and we get both revision and learn new language points. Smile
