    Smile the usage of the articles

    1. (1) Baseball games will make Jim and Jane happy. (2) The baseball game will make Jim and Jane happy. (3) A baseball game will make Jim and Jane happy. (4) Baseball game will make Jim and Jane happy. Will you tell me which sentences are correct?

    Why don't you have a go at the exercise yourself? It is better that you do the thinking first.

    Say: In (4), an article(before the subject) is needed.
