How to make a selectlist field on visualforce page required and behave similar to object field?

I need to add a selectlist on the vf page which has less number of picklist values than actual picklist on the object. I need to make the selectlist required and when the value is not selected the error message should display just below the select list as displayed for object fields.

Hi anil,

<apex:pageMessages />
<apex:selectList value="{!selectedSobject}" required="true" multiselect="false" size="1" >
            <apex:selectOption itemValue="Account" itemLabel="Accounts"/>
            <apex:selectOption itemValue="Contact" itemLabel="Contacts"/>
            <apex:selectOption itemValue="Opportunity" itemLabel="Opportunity"/>
