Declining to give advice
I don't know what to advise, I'm afraid.
I wish I could suggest something, but I can't.
I wish I could help.
I'm afraid I can't really help you.
Things to remember about asking for and giving advice:
1. "Advise" is a verb.
"I advise you to learn English. You will undoubtedly need it in your higher studies"
2. "Advice" is a noun.
"My father gave me this piece of advice when I was young: never give up"
3. "Ought to" has nearly the same meaning as "should". The only difference is that "ought to " refers to a moral or external obligation but should is more of an advice.
"You ought to stop smoking."
"You should stop smoking."
4. "You'd better" is the short form of "you had better"
"You'd better see a doctor!" = "You had better see the doctor"
