    Re: advice or advise ?

    "Advice" is the noun.

    "Advise" is the verb, so you would use "advised" adjectivally in this sentence.

    "What is your advice about this matter?"
    What do you advise about this matter?"

    Re: advice or advise ?

    There's a good mnemonic, but it only works for British English speakers (and speakers of other dialects - unlike Am English - that make this distinction):

    "practise" like "advise"
    "practice" like "advice"
