    Its a disadvantage that I dont know how to drive a car.

    Its a disadvantage that I dont know how to drive a car.

    I read this sentence in an exercise book. I consulted several dictionaries but couldn
    t find the pattern of Its a disadvantage that... I could only find sentences like this: Its a disadvantage not to be able to drive a car. I wonder if the pattern of Its a disadvantage that... OK or not.

    Thanks.

    Re: Its a disadvantage that I dont know how to drive a car.

    The first sentence is correct. The article for disadvantage is 'a', not 'an'.
