    Hi,

    As topic mentioned, what suitable phrase to ask in polite manner?
    For example, I need someone favor to test my completed assignment.

    "Can you please help me to do the testing for my Web Application?"

    or just,

    "Could you please do the testing for my Web Application?"

    What is the best and polite way to use?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Orga_Laut. Welcome to the forum.:)

    There are any number of ways to politely ask someone to do something for you. Your first sentence is just fine. Here's a few other suggestions:

    "Could you please do me a favour and do the testing for my Web Application?"

    "I would very much appreciate it if you could do the testing for my Web Application."

    "Would you please assist me by doing the testing for my Web Application?"
