Test: Articles - 2 - Question 1

Fill in the blank with an appropriate article:

He had heard there were many beavers in______________park.

Detailed Solution for Test: Articles - 2 - Question 1 It is stated that there are many beavers in the park. This suggests that the sentence is talking about a particular park. So, the definite article 'the' should be used.
Test: Articles - 2 - Question 2

Use an appropriate article:

Don't stay in that hotel. Its very noisy and __________beds are very uncomfortable.

Detailed Solution for Test: Articles - 2 - Question 2 We are referring specifically to the beds of the hotel mentioned. When we refer to specific things, we use the definite article 'the' before them. Hence, the right answer is option (c)
Test: Articles - 2 - Question 3

Use appropriate articles to complete the sentence:

I don't usually have_______lunch but I always eat_________good breakfast

Detailed Solution for Test: Articles - 2 - Question 3 No article is used before the names of meals. However, if meals are identified with adjectives, they can be used with articles. Here, 'good' is the positive degree of the adjective and is used to describe the meal. Therefore, the correct option is ‘no article; a’.
Test: Articles - 2 - Question 4

Fill in the blank with an appropriate article:

Have you ever been to_________British Museum?

Detailed Solution for Test: Articles - 2 - Question 4 The definite article 'the' is used before some proper nouns - names of places/people that are unique. Therefore, the correct option is ‘the’.
Test: Articles - 2 - Question 5

Fill in the blank with the most suitable article:

Moni got________last position in his class.

Detailed Solution for Test: Articles - 2 - Question 5 We use the definite article in front of a noun when we believe the listener/reader knows exactly what we are referring to: because there is only one, that is, only one last position. This is why we use the definite article with a superlative adjective, like last. Hence, Option C is correct. The rest of the options do not adhere to this rule, hence, incorrect.
Test: Articles - 2 - Question 6

Complete the sentence with the most appropriate option from those given below:

Maya is________analyst

Detailed Solution for Test: Articles - 2 - Question 6 Option B is the correct answer because 'an' is an indefinite article that is used before a non-specific singular noun starting with a vowel sound. Since 'analyst' starts with a vowel and we don't have enough information to know if Maya is a specific analyst, this is the aptest answer to this question.

Option A is incorrect because 'a' can only be used before non-specific nouns that start with a consonant.

Option C is incorrect because this sentence requires an indefinite article as we do not know if Maya is a specific analyst and 'the' is a definite article.

Option D is incorrect because it would be grammatically incorrect if used in the sentence.

Test: Articles - 2 - Question 7

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

Thomas went into________bathroom and brushed his teeth.

Detailed Solution for Test: Articles - 2 - Question 7 We use the definite article 'the' in front of a noun when we believe the hearer/reader knows exactly what we are referring to. Since from the sentence we know that Thomas went into a specific bathroom and brushed his teeth, option B is the correct answer. Options A and D are incorrect because 'an' and 'a' are indefinite articles that are used before indefinite or non-specific nouns when the hearer/reader doesn’t know what is being referred to. As this is not the case in the given sentence, these options are incorrect.

We use 'that' most commonly to point to a thing or person. As it would be grammatically incorrect if used in the given sentence, option C is incorrect.

Test: Articles - 2 - Question 8

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

Then he had_____shower.

Detailed Solution for Test: Articles - 2 - Question 8 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 This 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 9

Fill the blank with a suitable article:

A pacifist is somebody who is against ______war.

Detailed Solution for Test: Articles - 2 - Question 9 No article is used before abstract nouns. ‘War’ is an abstract noun. Therefore, the correct option is ‘no article’.
Test: Articles - 2 - Question 10

Fill in the blanks with the correct or no article(s):

Sandra is______better dancer than___________singer, (one person)

Detailed Solution for Test: Articles - 2 - Question 10 In expressing a comparison, if two nouns refer to the same person or thing, the article is used before the first noun only. But if the nouns refer to different persons or things, the article is used before each noun. Since in the given statement, both the nouns dancer and singer refer to one person the article will be used before the first noun only and no article will be used before 'singer'. Also, the indefinite article 'a' should be used whenever someone's work or job is being referred to. Therefore Option D is the correct answer. Since the nouns are not used to refer to the different types of work she does, the indefinite article 'a' cannot be used before the second noun' singer'. Therefore, Option A is incorrect. The' cannot be used when the nouns are being used in a general sense to single out any individual as the representative of a class. Therefore, Option B and C are incorrect.
Test: Articles - 2 - Question 11

Use a suitable article:

Can you play________musical instrument?

Detailed Solution for Test: Articles - 2 - Question 11 'A' is used before a singular noun used in a general sense. 'Musical instrument' is a singular noun and is used in a general sense here. Hence, the correct option is: a.
Test: Articles - 2 - Question 12

Put in a/an or somewhere necessary. If no word is necessary, leave the space empty (-) birds, such as the penguin, cannot fly.

Detailed Solution for Test: Articles - 2 - Question 12 'A' and 'an' are indefinite articles used for nouns which are not specific, indefinite, and singular. The birds mentioned are plural hence options B and C are incorrect. 'Some' is a quantifier which is usually used in a positive statement. 'Some' means an unspecified quantity or number, which is little or less. Hence it's the correct option here. The penguin' is a specific group, it is one of the birds that cannot fly, if the bird penguin was used as a general noun (penguins) eliminating the use of 'the' before 'penguin', then Option D would have been correct, but in this case, it's incorrect.
Test: Articles - 2 - Question 13

Fill in the blank with the most appropriate word:

Can you see those two men? They are________policemen.

Detailed Solution for Test: Articles - 2 - Question 13 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’ are 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 14

Fill in the blank with the most appropriate word:

Is there___________garden?

Detailed Solution for Test: Articles - 2 - Question 14 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 is used before a word starting with a consonant or consonant sound.

A definite article is an article that tells the uniqueness of something.

The' is the only definite article.

The blank will take 'a' as the sentence talks generally about a garden.

The correct answer is option C

Is there a garden?

Test: Articles - 2 - Question 15

Fill in the blank with an appropriate article:

The sun is_________star.

Detailed Solution for Test: Articles - 2 - Question 15 The 'star' refers to all the existing stars. The Sun is one of these stars. The articles 'a' and 'an also mean 'one'. 'An' is used when the noun begins with a vowel, and the star begins with a consonant, hence the correct option is 'a', and 'an' is the incorrect option. 'The' is an incorrect answer because the sun isn't the only star. The option D is incorrect because an article is required in the given statement as we are not referring to the star in a general sense.
Test: Articles - 2 - Question 16

Fill in the blank with the correct article:

Banaras is_________holy city.

Detailed Solution for Test: Articles - 2 - Question 16 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 incorrect grammatically as the blank requires a word for giving meaning to the sentence. Option B is incorrect as 'An' cannot be used with a word having a consonant sound. In Option D The' is used as the definite article with a particular noun, but this sentence talks about Banaras as a city out of many holy cities. Option A is correct as '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.

Test: Articles - 2 - Question 17

Fill in the blank with the most appropriate word:

Swimming is ________excellent sport

Detailed Solution for Test: Articles - 2 - Question 17 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. Excellent has a vowel sound. Option A is incorrect as the blank requires an article to carry out the meaning of the sentence. Option D is incorrect as The excellent' is illogical here as there can be other sports which can be as excellent as swimming. Option B is incorrect as 'A' is used for a word with a consonant sound.

Test: Articles - 2 - Question 18

Fill in the blanks with the most appropriate words:

______long walk in____country is very interesting.

Detailed Solution for Test: Articles - 2 - Question 18 OPTION "A" is the correct answer.

There are two types of articles:

DEFINITE ARTICLE (THE): Article 'the' is used to refer to a DEFINITE thing or person. 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 FIRST Blank, article "a" will be used as the sentence is referring to something general.

In the SECOND blank, article "the" will be used because "country" is a 'definite' and specific place.

Test: Articles - 2 - Question 19

Complete the sentence with the best option from those given below:

Charlie Chaplin was________English film actor.

Detailed Solution for Test: Articles - 2 - Question 19 Option A is incorrect as 'A 'can't be used with a word beginning with a vowel. Option C is incorrect as 'The' is used as a definite article for a particular subject but neither English nor actor is unique. Option D is incorrect as 'One' doesn't go with the sense of the sentence. Because it states a number which means there is only one English film actor in the world and that's impractical. Hence Option B is correct as 'An' is used with a word having a vowel sound.
Test: Articles - 2 - Question 20

Fill in the blank with the most appropriate word:

Oxford is________English university.

Detailed Solution for Test: Articles - 2 - Question 20 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.

The blank shall take 'an' as it represents one of the English universities.

'Oxford is an English university.'

The correct answer is option (a) An.
