  • What is so confusing here? How about "What was she named?" or "What name was she given?"? Commented Nov 20, 2015 at 19:35
  • Sir , what about this? By what name was she called or addressed? Commented Nov 20, 2015 at 19:38
  • Are you asking how to properly respond to that kind of question or what? The typical response in the passive voice would be, if somebody asked you that, "She was named Sylvia." Commented Nov 20, 2015 at 19:39
  • Okay, thanks to you. Sir. God bless you . Sir , how to ask someone a question personally in this platform? Commented Nov 20, 2015 at 19:43
  • You can ask right here in the comments section if you'd like or create a separate post. Commented Nov 20, 2015 at 19:47

  • Sir, I need your help. I am interested in English. I don't have any good teacher to guide me. How can I improve my mistakes? How to improve my Grammar? I am totally upset about it. Please you are our senior teachers. You know better than me . Commented Nov 20, 2015 at 19:50
  • Go online and look for tutoring services or buy a grammar book. But nowadays almost all the information on English grammar and usage you would possibly ever need is available online completely for free. I would personally recommend this guy: learnamericanenglishonline.com/Your%20Teacher.html Commented Nov 20, 2015 at 19:59

    @user124234 - You might also try frequenting the ELL chat room. Be patient, though. No one will be able to teach you English in a matter of a few weeks.
