Definite article :[The]

The” is the only article that is used to make specific references to nouns.

(‘The’ का use, noun को निश्चित (definite) बनाने के लिए किया जाता है)

Look at the sentences below and think about the difference in the meaning of the sentences

  • A man crossed the road.           [may be anyone]
  • The man crossed the road.       [Specific]

Indefinite articles: [A, An]

1. “A” is used before nouns that begin with a consonant sound. e.g. A boy, a car, a pen

2. “An” is used before nouns that begin with a vowel sound. e.g. An egg, an apple

3. Some special phrases use A/An like this-

 [in a hurry, at a loss, tell a lie, make a mistake, take a rest, make a noise etc.]

 Ex:- Don’t make noise in the class. (incorrect)

Don’t make a noise in the class. (correct)

4. Verb का प्रयोग noun के रूप में होने पर इसके पहले A/An का प्रयोग होता है-

  Ex:-I go for walk in the morning. (incorrect)

I go for a walk in the morning.  (correct)

5. Singular countable noun से पहले किया जाता है-
