When hitting a drive, your feet must be spread about shoulder-length apart, knees bent, and racket up. The push comes from the shoulder first to keep it flat, and then a slight flick of the wrist to push the bird further for speed.
The drive in badminton is an attacking shot that is normally played from the sides of the court. when the shuttle has fallen too low for it to be returned with a smash. The shuttle will be between the shoulder and knee level.
Drive is a fast and flat shot, your opponent has to be alert in order to return it. By hitting drive(as it is fast) your opponent has lesser time to react hence working to your advantage, helping you to gain points
an overarm shot
A forehand shot in Badminton is where the shuttlecock is hit forward with the racquet without crossing the upper body as in a backhand shot.
No because all you are doing is letting go of a shuttlecock ad hitting it with a badminton bat

Any kind of lift is a defensive shot in badminton as it gives your opponents the opportunity to play a smash or other attacking shot.
This is a shot that results when the base of the shuttle is hit by the frame of the racket. Once illegal, this shot has become acceptable since it was deemed so by the International Badminton Federation in 1963.
