    1 Rectify the smell in the bathroom.

    2 Packing of items to be sent to abroad Not sure what ‘packing of items’ means or what this phrase refers to? Provide context.

    Re: Kindly correct the following sentences

    I doubted it if smell could be "rectfied". (Is it better to use "remove"?)

    Re: Kindly correct the following sentences

    For the second sentence, I would say
    Packing the items to be sent to abroad.(or)
    Packing items to be sent to abroad.

    The verb "rectify" has the following meanings: to make, put, or set right; remedy; correct: to refine or purify; to set straight or right. I myself had kind of a mulled over this word a bit. Although not common, I think it could theoretically be used with Sentence (1). No?

    "Remove" is not a bad choice; so is "improve" & the like.

    Re: Kindly correct the following sentences

    Packing of items to be sent to abroad is not a sentence; it has neither a subject nor a verb. If it is a command (imperative) sentence like the first one, it should say, "Pack items to be sent abroad."
    If it is not an imperative sentence it should say, "You should pack the items to be sent abroad." If it is a question, say, "Are you packing items to be sent abroad?"
