    Hi, Nidhi


    You can use zero , definite, indefinite article and other determinatives . as well.


    e.g.

    1. Ice-cream is my favourite. - zero article

    2. I`ll buy an ice-cream for me and another one for my sister. -indefinite article

    3. I`ve bought a very good ice-cream for my sister. -indefinite article

    4.The ice-cream they prepare is the best one in town.- definite article


    The same with "ironbox", though I`d use "iron box" :

    1. Iron boxes are good to keep money in. -zero article
    [ I think there might be better examples than the one I have already written but I can`t think of a better one at this moment.]


    2. I need an iron box for.....- indefinite article

    3. The iron box I got is very nice. - definite article


    Regards,
