Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

      She is carrying ______umbrella.

    The word "umbrella" starts with a vowel sound, specifically the sound "uh." In English grammar, when a word starts with a vowel sound, we use the article "an" before it instead of "a." Therefore, the correct answer is "an."

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

      ______stars twinkle at night.

    The correct answer is "the" and "The". In this sentence, "stars" is a plural noun, so it requires the article "the" before it. "Twinkle" is a verb, so it does not require an article before it. "The" is capitalized because it is the first word of a new sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

     My brother drinks ______ cup of milk.

    The correct answer is "a". This is because "a" is used before a singular countable noun to indicate one of something. In this case, it is indicating that the brother drinks one cup of milk.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

      There is _______ owl on the tree.

    The correct answer is "an" because the word "owl" begins with a vowel sound. In English grammar, we use "an" before words that start with a vowel sound, and "a" before words that start with a consonant sound.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

      They go to school in ______ morning.

    The correct answer is "the" because the sentence is referring to a specific morning, indicating that the speaker is talking about a particular morning when they go to school. The definite article "the" is used to specify and identify a particular noun, in this case, the morning.
