Hello MuhammadAdnanMemon,

It's hard for me to give you specific advice without knowing your English a lot better in terms of your strengths and weaknesses, needs and preferences and so on.

You can find some useful general suggestions on our Help page, and for IELTS writing I recommend TakeIELTS, which is the British Council's site for IELTS candidates, and which has a lot of examples taken from the exam for you to see.

I hope those links are helpful.

Hi Anwar Ali Nizamani,

It's hard for me to give you any specific advice as I do not know enough about you and your English - this is not really something I can do in on the internet! However, I can suggest an excellent site for you on which you can find tips and suggestions about IELTS, practice materials, practice exams with sample answers and more. It's takeielts.britishcouncil.org, which is specially designed to help IELTS candidates like yourself.

Best wishes and good luck!

Could you please guide me how to change the voice for the below sentences?
"Do I have to sent her money?"
1>>>"Do I send her money?" [Active]
>>>Is money sent to her by me? [Passive] OR
>>>Is she sent money by me?[Passive]
2>>>Do I have to sent money? [Active ]
>>>Is money have to be sent by me?[Passive]

Thanking you.....

Hello axu,

As I mentioned in my last comment, please post your questions on a relevant page; in this case, the active and passive voice page is the most appropriate, since your question is about that topic.

The transformations for 1 are correct. For 2, you must use the auxiliary verb Does instead of Is. Please also note that the word sent is incorrect in the active sentence in 2 - the base form send is needed, not the past participle.
