Rules for articles (A/An/The)
Rules for articles (A/An/The) with practice exercise.
An article is a word or a letter which is used before noun and tells about the certainty of that noun".
There are two types of articles :
(i) Indefinite articles: A, AN
(ii) Definite article: The
(i) A or AN is called the Indefinite Article because it mentions an indefinite person or thing.
(a)A boy means any boy.
(b) A teacher means any teacher.
For example, if I say, "Let's read the book," I mean a specific book. If I say, "Let's read a book," I mean any book rather than a specific book.
Rules to Use article "A/An"
1. ?? ?? ???? ???? ?? ????? ??? ?? ??? ?? ????? ?? ?? ????? ??? ???? ???? ??? ???? ?? ? ??? ?? ??? ?? ???? (? ? ? ? .......? ) ??? ?? ?? ?? an ?? ?????? ????, ?? ??? ???? (? ? ? .......) ?? ?? ?? a ?? ?????? ???? )
For an example-
An MLA .Although MLA begins with M but while we pronounce it the sound is of (?).You may also write in hindi and see it will be written as ?? ?? ? while checking out the first sound we find a vowel sound there so an will be used. Similar is the case with an MA degree, an SP, an LLB degree etc.
2. 'A' is used before some indefinite numbers.
Example:. (a) A lot of (b) a number of (c) a great deal of (d) a half of a large number of (e) a quarter of

5. 'A' is used instead of 'per".
(a) Petrol is sold at Rs. twenty-five a litre.

Example: (a) A man is mortal.—wrong

7. Note that in English, the indefinite articles are used to indicate membership in a profession, nationality status, or religion.
(a) I am a teacher.
(b) Brian is an Irishman.

(a) The student makes noise in the class. —wrong.
The student makes a noise in the class.—correct
(b) Jonny always tells lie.—wrong;

12. If the noun is modified by an adjective, the choice between a and an depends on the initial sound of the adjective that immediately follows the article:

(b) What variety of mango is this? (correct)
18. A/An is used in the vague sense of ‘a certain’ as-
A Ravi Sharma is suspected by the police.
(Ravi Sharma is a proper noun so it should not take an article but here it is referring to a certain person Ravi Sharma whom we don’t know which means the sense is vague and not clear.)
19. A is used with certain numbers. Eg a hundred, a thousand, a million etc.
A is more common than one before thousand, million, billion etc.
(a) There were a hundred rupees to be paid.
20 A is used before half when half ; when half follows a whole number.

21 Omit a/an before uncountable nouns, such as sugar, music, gold, silver etc.
22 The expressions "a few" and "a little" mean "some" and express the idea that you have more than expected.
He always carries a few dollars in case of an emergency..
He had a little difficulty with his homework but he managed somehow.

HOWEVER: The expressions "few" and "little" (without an article) mean "not much" and express the idea that you have less than expected. (It is negative)

Sadly, he has met very few interesting people in his life.

USAGE OF THE
THE is called a definite article. "Definite" means "specific". Use THE when talking about something which is already known to the listener or which has been previously mentioned, introduced, or discussed.
Examples: I have a cat. The cat is black.
There is a book in my backpack. The book is very heavy.
Do you know where I left the car keys? The listener knows which specific car keys you are talking about.
Use THE with superlatives such as "the best", "the biggest", "the most important", "the least interesting", etc.
Examples: This is the best day ever.
That is the most expensive hotel room I've ever heard of in my life.
He told the funniest story.
English speakers often use THE plus a singular noun when they talk about or make generalizations about certain topics, including:
- animals (the leopard, the elephant, the lowland gorilla)
- inventions (the steam engine, the plane, the light bulb)
- currencies (the dollar, the euro, the yen)
- body parts (the head, the eye, the ear)
The Wright brothers invented the aeroplane.
Right now, the euro is stronger than the dollar.
Madhu got poked in the eye.
Generally, articles are not used with the names of illnesses or diseases.
Examples: Dr Veena visits schools and universities to educate students on cancer.
Oncologists are doctors who specialize in treating cancer.
There are several medications that can be used to treat malaria.
Exceptions: There are some illnesses which require THE. Example -the measles, the flu, the mumps, the plague.
MOREOVER: There are a few health conditions or illnesses which can be used with both A(AN) as well as THE and follow general article use. This category includes most aches, pains, growths, and attacks.
Examples- a cold , a heart attack , a stroke , a tumor / growth / etc., a sore throat / sore back/ sore foot / etc.
a headache / toothache / backache / etc.
Examples: John has a cold. The cold was very bad.
Madhu had a heart attack. The heart attack seriously weakened her heart.
Mam had a sore throat. The sore throat made it hard to talk.
If a direction (north, west, southeast, left, right) directly follows a verb, do not use an article with the direction.
Examples: We need to walk south.
They drove north all day.
At the stop sign, turn left and walk three blocks.
HOWEVER: If a direction follows a preposition, you must use THE.
Examples: Our house is in the north.
The grocery store is on the right.
MOREOVER: Use THE when referring to a place as special geographic or cultural region.
Examples: We love the South.
Have you ever visited the East?
The West has better national parks.
Note – Do not confuse names of places with directions. Example- West Bengal is the name of a place and not a direction.
Article the is not used before names of persons.
Example Ram has topped the class.
Ravi is my brother.
We can use a/an before the names of persons whom we do not know. When we know the person we do not use a/an.
Example- Indu wants to talk to you.( The speaker and listener both know Indu)
There is a Ravi on the line who wants to talk to you.( Instead of a , some can also be used. Here the listener and the speaker are not aware of who Ravi is)
Sometimes we compare a person to some historical or other well known personality for certain specific traits. In such sentences a/an will be used.
Example – He is a Sachin (Means he plays cricket very well)
He is a Vishwanathan Anand (Means he plays chess very well)
His younger brother is a Lakshman.( Means he is very devoted to his elder brother)
But sometimes we wish to be more specific.
He is a Sachin.( Just a simple comparison so use a only)
He is the Sachin of our school cricket team.( Here it is clearly mentioned that he is the Sachin of our school cricket team. It becomes definite so ‘The’ will be used before Sachin)
THE can be used with plural family names to refer to the family as a group if it is a powerful and well recognized family.
The Gandhis are very powerful in Indian politics.
The Bachchans are originally from Allahabad.
My brother lives next door to the Ambanis.
THE can be combined with certain adjectives to refer to a group of people such as "the blind", "the elderly", "the rich", "the French", "the powerful ", etc.
Examples: He is elderly. (Adjective)
The organization helps the elderly. (Elderly people)
REMEMBER: This is especially important in situations where nationalities or ethnic groups and their languages might be confused. In such situations, THE is used to specify that we are talking about the nationality or ethnic group rather than the language.
Examples: I like French. (Language)
I like the French. (The French people)
Do not use THE with the names of most countries unless the name contains a word such as "States", "Kingdom", "Republic", "Emirates", "Union", "Coast", etc.
Examples: I love Italy.

He met me at Lakshmi Bai Chowk.
I dropped him at Indira Gandhi International Airport.
I met him at the Mall road. (Here the road’s name is mall road which is not the name of a person so ‘The’ will be used.)
(Since the names of places have names of persons in them so article ‘The’will not be used.)
Do not use an article with:
- individual lakes
- individual islands
- individual mountains (Kanchenjunga)
- public squares
- days of the week
- the months of the year
- Names of meals
