    1. is correct.

    2. 'a' was not omitted. It is not required.

    Thanks.
    2. 'a' was not omitted. It is not required.
    2. It functions as (a) modification. (Why isn't 'a' required? Modification is not a count noun?)

    What about these? What do these mean?
    1. I have five slices of apple.
    2. I have five slices of (an) apple. (If 'an' is not required, why?)
