      The; a

    Correct Answer
    A. A; a
    Explanation
    When a woman really makes her mind to marry a man, nothing on God's earth can save him. The use of the indefinite article "a" before "woman" and "man" indicates that any woman and any man are being referred to in this statement. It suggests that once a woman has made up her mind to marry someone, there is no escape or avoidance for that man.

    Правильно ли употреблены артикли в данном предложении? I bought kitten yesterday.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The given sentence "I bought a kitten yesterday" is grammatically correct. The use of the indefinite article "a" before the noun "kitten" is appropriate because the speaker is referring to a non-specific kitten, not a specific one. Therefore, the sentence is correctly using the articles.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Вставьте пропущенный артикль, если необходимо: For the forth time this week, Katya is having ___ headache.

    Correct Answer
    a
    Explanation
    The word "headache" is a countable noun, so it requires an article before it. In this case, the correct article to use is "a" because it indicates that Katya is having one specific headache, not a specific or particular headache. The use of "the" would imply that there is a specific headache that Katya is referring to, which is not the intended meaning in this sentence.

    • E.

      The; the

    Correct Answer
    C. A; a
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "a; a". In this sentence, the speaker is referring to a specific magazine and a specific newspaper, but they are not known or mentioned before. Therefore, the indefinite article "a" is used before both "magazine" and "newspaper".

    Rate this question:

    • C.

      A

    Correct Answer
    C. A
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "a". In this sentence, "a" is used to indicate that Philip heard a man's voice, but not a specific or previously mentioned man. The use of "a" suggests that it could be any man's voice.

    Rate this question:

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In this sentence, the use of the indefinite articles "a" before "word" and "sound" is correct. The sentence is emphasizing the absence of any word or sound, indicating that none were spoken or made. The use of "a" before both nouns helps to convey this meaning.

      The

    Correct Answer
