    Is it necessary to add "the" in the sentence?

    I have four sentences below.

    (1) I want to print out pictures of beautiful flowers in this album.

    (2) I want to print out thepictures of beautiful flowers in this album.

    (3) I want to print out pictures of the beautiful flowers in this album.

    (4) I want to print out the pictures of the beautiful flowers in this album.


    Which sentence is grammatically correct? Please explain. Thanks a lot.

    They are all correct. But the meanings are different. When you include "the", you are referring to a particular object.
