Developing a responsive website will provide the user with an awesome experience over a number of hand held mobile devices. In other words, developing a responsive website will benefit the user. However, you might want to take the time to do some research on responsive web design to decide for yourself. But to answer your question, the answer is no, you don't have to make a responsive website for mobile devices.

Alrighty i am currently doing the course for responsive and was just making sure so i wouldn't do more work than i have to. Thank you. :)

If a user just wants to go to your website to complete some task and doesn't want to be required to install something to use a website. Also, what about tablet users, it's much closer to a desktop users than mobile phone users.

Oh, Yes that is true.
