    Write the correct article: "a" or "an" Every day I eat ___ apple. 

    Explanation
    The correct article to use in this sentence is "an." This is because the word "apple" starts with a vowel sound.

In English grammar, the article "a" is used before words that start with a consonant sound, while the article "an" is used before words that start with a vowel sound. Since "red" is pronounced with a /r/ sound, which is a consonant sound, we use "a" before it.
