In this article, we study the oscillation of solutions to a nonlinear forced fractional differential equation. The fractional derivative is defined in the sense of the modified Riemann-Liouville derivative. Based on a transformation of variables and properties of the modified Riemann-liouville derivative, the fractional differential equation is transformed into a second-order ordinary differential equation. Then by a generalized Riccati transformation, inequalities, and an integration average technique, we establish oscillation criteria for the fractional differential equation.
