    Explanation
    The correct answer is "an" because the word "hour" begins with a vowel sound. In English, we use "an" before words that start with a vowel sound, and "a" before words that start with a consonant sound. Since "hour" is pronounced with a silent "h" sound, we use "an" instead of "a" in this sentence.

    Correct Answer
    A. A

    Correct Answer
    B. An
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "an". In this sentence, the word "umbrella" starts with a vowel sound, specifically the sound /ʌ/. When a noun begins with a vowel sound, we use the indefinite article "an" instead of "a". Therefore, the correct article to use in this sentence is "an".

    Correct Answer
    A. A
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "a". In this sentence, the indefinite article "a" is used before the noun "one year old daughter" to indicate that the speaker has a daughter who is one year old. The use of "a" suggests that the speaker may have other children or that this is their first child.

    Correct Answer
    B. An
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "an". This is because the word "ordinary" begins with a vowel sound, specifically the sound /ɔː/. When a word begins with a vowel sound, we use the indefinite article "an" instead of "a". Therefore, in this sentence, the correct article to use before "ordinary" is "an".

    Correct Answer
    A. A

    • D.

      No article

    Correct Answer
    A. A
    Explanation
    The word "France" starts with a consonant sound, so the correct article to use before it is "a". The article "an" is used before words that start with a vowel sound, and "the" is used when we are referring to a specific noun. "No article" means that no article is needed in this context, but since we are talking about France as a European country, the indefinite article "a" is necessary.

    • D.

      No article

    Correct Answer
    D. No article
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "no article" because when referring to a general concept or idea, we do not need to use an article. In this case, "freedom" is a general concept, so we do not need to use "a," "an," or "the."

      No article

    Correct Answer
    C. The

      The

    • D.

      No article

    Correct Answer
    D. No article
    Explanation
    In this sentence, the phrase "laughter is the best medicine" is a general statement that does not refer to a specific laughter or a specific medicine. Therefore, no article is needed before the word "laughter." The absence of an article allows the sentence to convey a universal truth rather than a specific instance.
