Student or Learner
Thank you for your cordial replies in the previous discussion.
please check the sentences for errors for me to ensure that I have fully understood the articles.
1. I met a son of a rich banker yesterday night.
2. John Perkins is the son of a rich banker.
3. I met a son of the rich banker of Citibank that I had met two days ago.
4. John Perkins is the son of the rich banker of Citibank that I had met two days ago.
Are all the articles correctly used?
I am whole-heartedly grateful to you for your kindness and helping.
Gill, my understanding may be incorrect, but I will try to explain. Let me know if I make sense.
It is a book. - A general statement describing what that object is.
This is the book I was looking for all these days. - I and the listener knows, which book I am referring to?
He is a son of a Rich banker.
Rich banker - Refers to the person's title but not as who he is
a son - whose son? The son of a Rich banker.
I think a definite article sounds appropriate compared to "a son" here.
I would appreciate any help and explanation to this further.
