8 is wrong. there is a much simpler answer. the rest are correct.
I thought of "Demand" but discarded it because there was no indicator to suggest a hidden clue. It is an improperly constructed clue; in its absence, my answer as a double definition is reasonable.

i must disagree. wanted doesn't fit the definition of either mandatory or essential .

Look up the synonym for essential; wanted is one. Made request also implies wanted.

Essential = inherent, suggesting a hidden clue.

You can make a case for it. Not obvious, if it is supposedly easy cryptics. I have also made a case. :-)
