    I would like to go to _______ London

    Explanation
    The use of the zero article indicates that the speaker wants to go to London in general, without specifying a particular location within London. The zero article is used when referring to places as a general concept or when they are considered as a whole. In this case, the speaker wants to go to any part of London, without specifying a specific area or district.

    Explanation

    If you want to go shopping in London, the best place for you is _____ Oxford Street.

    Explanation
    In this question, the phrase "the best place for you" indicates that we are looking for a specific place in London. "Oxford Street" is a specific location, so it should be preceded by the definite article "the." However, the correct answer states "zero article," which means that no article should be used before "Oxford Street." This is incorrect as it does not follow the rules of English grammar.

    In _____ Madame Tussaud's you can see wax figures of famous people.

    Explanation
    The use of the zero article indicates that there is no specific Madame Tussaud's being referred to. Instead, it suggests that in any Madame Tussaud's location, you can see wax figures of famous people. The zero article is used when referring to general or non-specific nouns. In this case, it is used to talk about Madame Tussaud's in a general sense, rather than a specific location.
