    usage of condition

    I would like to make a few sentences with the word, condition.

    (1) Your car is in (a) better condition than mine.

    (2) A lot of the used cars sold in this company are very old and slightly damaged. I am looking for better-condition ones.

    (3) The collector wants to sell all of his excellent-condition stamps at an auction.


    In (1), is it grammatically wrong to add the article, a, for the word, condition?

    Am I using the word correctly? Thanks a lot.

    Re: usage of condition

    The indefinite article is not required in (1).
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
