the function of two sentences (unfortunately, the context, or more co-text,
is not available):

(1) If they want others to do it, I'll advise against their having children.

(2) If they want others to do it, I'd advise against their having children.

Please select one of the following:

A. Both sentences function as advice

B. Only sentence (1) functions as advice

C. Only sentence (2) functions as advice

D. Neither sentence functions as advice

E. I cannot tell out of context

Could you also clarify if you would describe yourself as a native speaker

a summary when I've collated all responses.

Thank you
