Remember : 

Remember When you remember something, it comes to your mind. You can remember doing something (remember the fact that you did it) or remember to do something (remember that you have to do it). I always remember our teacher giving us some advice on how to pronounce English words. I didn’t remember to tell Al about this matter.

Remind : 

Remind To remind means to make someone remember something. You can also say that someone/something reminds you other person or thing when they are so similar that makes you remember the person / thing. Please, remind me to take the garbage out on Wednesday.

Rent :
