    • D.

      "no article"

    Correct Answer
    A. A
    Explanation

    Correct Answer
    B. An
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "an" because the word "hour" begins with a vowel sound. When using indefinite articles, "an" is used before words that begin with a vowel sound, while "a" is used before words that begin with a consonant sound. Therefore, in this sentence, "an" is the appropriate choice.

    Explanation

This indicates that the sentence is referring to water in a general sense, rather than a specific or countable quantity.
