Test: Articles- 2 - Question 1

Fill in the blank with an appropriate article:

It was _____ wonderful experience for me.

Detailed Solution for Test: Articles- 2 - Question 1

'An/A' is used as an indefinite article for a thing or person when the reader doesn't know which one we are referring to out of many nouns. It states the random nature of the subject.
'The' is used as a definite article for a thing or person when the reader knows which one we are exactly referring to. It states the specific nature of the subject.
Option B is incorrect as 'An' can't be used with a word beginning with consonant.  Option C is incorrect as
'The' will not suit the sense of the sentence. Option A is correct as it suits the meaning of the sentence and is grammatically correct. 

Test: Articles- 2 - Question 2

Fill in the blank with an appropriate article with the help of the hint in the bracket:

I used to have _____ small telescope. (You've mentioned the telescope for the first time)

Detailed Solution for Test: Articles- 2 - Question 2

'A' is an indefinite article which is usually used before a noun which begins with a consonant, is singular and it's the first time that the noun is being spoken about, making Option B the correct answer. The article 'an' is used when the noun begins with a vowel, and is spoken about for the first time. Since the noun in the statement  does not begin with a vowel, Option A is incorrect. The article 'the' is used for specific nouns, either singular or plural, and have been spoken about earlier. The noun in the given statement seems to have been mentioned for the first time in front of the 2nd person, hence 'the' is not the correct answer. Articles are not required when generalizing about uncountable nouns, plural countable nouns and sometimes even singular nouns (Though, not in the given sentence). Since the noun in the statement is a singular noun, Option D is incorrect.

Test: Articles- 2 - Question 3

Fill in the blank with an appropriate article.

Such a severe storm occurs only once in _______ decade.

Detailed Solution for Test: Articles- 2 - Question 3

The statement implies that 'such a severe storm occurs only once in ONE decade'. 'One' can be replaced by the indefinite article 'a' as it precedes a word starting with a consonant sound.

Test: Articles- 2 - Question 4

Fill in the blank with an appropriate article.

He is _____ astronaut. 

Detailed Solution for Test: Articles- 2 - Question 4

Here, we are referring to a person belonging to a particular class/group. So, the answer should be 'an' as it precedes a word beginning with a vowel sound 'astronaut'. 

Test: Articles- 2 - Question 5

Fill in the blank with an appropriate article.

She is _____ doctor.

Detailed Solution for Test: Articles- 2 - Question 5

The sentence refers to a person belonging to a particular class or group. So, the answer should be the indefinite article 'a' as the word 'doctor' starts with a consonant sound.

Test: Articles- 2 - Question 6

Complete the sentence with the correct word from the given options.

Then he had ______ shower. [Basic]

Detailed Solution for Test: Articles- 2 - Question 6

Here, 'shower' is a common noun and the sentence does not mention anything definitive about the shower. So, the most appropriate answer is option A) A. Option B) An is incorrect because 'shower' starts with a consonant. Option C) The is incorrect because there is nothing to suggest that the shower is a definitive one. 'Shower' is not owned by the subject, so we cannot use 'his'.

Test: Articles- 2 - Question 7

Choose the option that best fills in the blank:

He will be ___ Moses in leading his people. [Intermediate]

Detailed Solution for Test: Articles- 2 - Question 7

Most proper nouns do not need an article, but there are exceptions. Like in the given sentence, 'Moses' does not refer to the prophet himself, but in a metaphorical sense, his qualities as a leader are referred to. Hence option A is correct. Option B is incorrect because the noun does not begin with a vowel. Option C is incorrect because there can only be one Moses, and 'he' cannot be someone else, except metaphorically. Option D is incorrect because it's used for nouns which are nearby and the noun mentioned is physically impossible to be nearby.

Test: Articles- 2 - Question 8

Fill in the blank with the appropriate article:

Kalpana Chawla was _____ first Indian woman in space.

Detailed Solution for Test: Articles- 2 - Question 8

We use 'the' when the adjective that modifies the noun 'woman' is in the superlative degree 'first'. Hence option C is the correct answer. Options A and B are indefinite articles which refer to the noun as 'any one' of its group. Since there can't be 'any first' Indian woman, these options are incorrect. An article is required before a superlative adjective, because the superlative 'first' is unique, there can only be one 'first' since it's a position, hence option D is incorrect. Also, an article is not required when the noun is spoken about in general sense, whereas the noun 'woman' is specific here.

Test: Articles- 2 - Question 9

Fill in the blank with the most appropriate word.

A Mercedes is __________ German car.

Detailed Solution for Test: Articles- 2 - Question 9

An indefinite article is used when we are talking generally about something whereas a definite article is used when we are talking about something specific.
The indefinite articles are 'a' and 'an'. An is used before a word starting with a vowel or vowel sound. 
A definite article is an article that tells the uniqueness of something.
'The' is the only definite article.
The blank shall take 'a' as 'German car' is a noun complement.
A Mercedes is a German car.
The correct answer is option A) A.

Test: Articles- 2 - Question 10

Choose the option that best corrects the sentence:

I had a lavish lunch yesterday. [Advanced]

Detailed Solution for Test: Articles- 2 - Question 10

Articles are not used before meals except when they take an adjective before them. Here, the article 'a' is used before lavish because it describes the noun lunch in a general sense and 'lavish' begins with a 'consonant sound'. Therefore, the correct option is: I had a lavish lunch yesterday.

Test: Articles- 2 - Question 11

Fill in the blanks with the most appropriate words

._______ apple _______ day keeps _______ doctor away.

Article 'a' is used with consonant sounds whereas article 'an' is used with vowel sounds.
In the first blank, article "a" will be used because 'apple' is a common noun.
In the second blank, article "a" will be used because 'day' is a common noun.
In the third blank, article "the" will be used because the speaker is mentioning someone specific/definite like a doctor who can be hypothetically kept away by eating an apple everyday.

In the THIRD Blank, article "an" will be used as the sentence is referring to something general.

INDEFINITE ARTICLE(A/AN): Article 'a/an' is used to refer to a thing or person in general. For instance: man, door etc.
Article 'a' is used with consonant sounds whereas article 'an' is used with vowel sounds.

In the SECOND blank, article "the" will be used because 'YEAR' is a definite time.

Test: Articles- 2 - Question 14

Fill in the blank with the most appropriate word.

Can you see those two men? They are ___________ policemen. [Basic]

Detailed Solution for Test: Articles- 2 - Question 14

An/A' is used as an indefinite article for a thing or person when the reader doesn't know which one we are referring to out of many nouns. It states the random nature of the subject.
'The' is used as a definite article for a thing or person when the reader knows which one we are exactly referring to. It states the specific nature of the subject.
Option A is correct as the blank requires no article to carry out the meaning of the sentence. Option D is incorrect because
'An' is used with a word having a vowel sound.  Option B is incorrect as 'The policemen' is illogical here as they haven't been mentioned previously as policemen. Option C is incorrect as 'A' is used for a singular countable noun. 

Test: Articles- 2 - Question 15

Fill in the blank with the most appropriate word.

My father is _____ engineer.

Detailed Solution for Test: Articles- 2 - Question 15

An/A' is used as an indefinite article for a thing or person when the reader doesn't know which one we are referring to out of many nouns. It states the random nature of the subject.
'The' is used as a definite article for a thing or person when the reader knows which one we are exactly referring to. It states the specific nature of the subject.
Option C is correct because 'An' is used with a word having a vowel sound to indicate a single countable noun which is random in nature. 'An Engineer' is thus grammatically correct. Option B is incorrect as 'The' would indicate a specific engineer who the reader knows of. Option A is incorrect as 'A' is used for words with a consonant sound. Option D is incorrect as we can figure out the answer from the given options.
