Ayafuya - vagueness in Japanese

Reading through a Japanese textbook today I came across a word with the suffix -naranai.  It's very familiar,  elementary level Japanese, but the context puzzled me.   I referred to my trusty Canon wordtank electronic dictionary.


1. must do, have (got) to do, need to do; ought to do; should do
2. must not do
3. cannot help doing

No wonder I struggle....
