If you have any doubt, you can look at the dictionary for the phonetic transcription.

Example: advised (ad’vaiz)

NOTE: Look carefully for verbs, not for nouns or adjectives because in some cases they have some phonetic differences.

Group A - Voiceless sound Last sound of the verb in infinitive

Group B - Voiced sound Last sound of the verb in infinitive
