Why is the indefinite article 'an' used in place of 'a' in:
"Authorities in a rural area of Northern California have launched a sweeping manhunt for an intruder who fatally stabbed an 9-year-old girl Saturday."
?Thanks in advance!
Hi.What does it mean that:
"[...]capturinng all of you opponent's pieces can be a most effective way of winning the battle."
I mean, what does 'a most' mean?I always thought that most is always preceeded by 'the'.Could you please explain the use of the indefinite article?
Thanks in advance
"Now all that remains is for white to checkmate the King."
From Play Winning Chess, p.163
Why not simply saying "Now all that renains is that White checkmates the king"?Why using this for-structure?
Thanks in advance!
