• The MHD flow of a viscous fluid towards a non-linear porous shrinking sheet was investigated.The governing equations were simplified by similarity transformations and then the reduced problem was solved by homotopy analysis method(HAM).The pertinent parameters appeared in the problem were discussed graphically and through the tables.It is found that the shrinking solutions in the presence of MHD exit.It is also observed from the tables that solutions for f"(0) with different values of parameters are convergent.
