    a bond / the bond

    Hi,

    Question:
    Should I say a or the?

    Sentence:
    Provided that investors hold a/the bond until the date of maturity, investors can gain a investment return which is known in advance.

    thanks

    If referring to a general rule about bonds, use "a". If a particular bond or type of bond was previously mentioned, use "the".
