Student or Learner
i piously believe i understand which articles to use during my exercises, but some of them just confusing me.
Here they are:
1. Our teacher gave us (/)aanthe test today. It was (/)aanthe really hard test.
so, the rule tells me
Hence, why can't i say "It was the really hard test"? I know it's bit strange even for my begginer learner ears, but the rule says to do so, doesn't it?THE is called a definite article. "Definite" means "specific". Use THE when talking about something which is already known to the listener or which has been previously mentioned, introduced, or discussed.
If i reprhase it and say like "The test was really hard" i would definitely use "THE", not "A".
so, why i should use "A" instead of "The" in the original sentence?
