    the?

    Please let me know whether my sentence below needs an article 'the' in front of 'relevant'? Thanks a lot.

    "We will discuss (A. relevant B. the relevant ) matters concerning the forthcoming important event."

    Re: the?

    I don't think "relevant" is necessary, with or without the article.

    maoyueh, please note that a better title would have been We will discuss (the) relevant matters.

    If you want to use "relevant" you could write: "We will discuss matters relevant to the forthcoming important event."
