    Exclamation I need some names of....

    I need some names of Oceans, seas, Rivers, Mountain ranges and Countries which are republics or unions.
    Because I need to know how to add "the" before them.
    Thanks

    No, you cannot write the Australia but you can write the Lebanon because it is officially a republic : The Republic of Lebanon..
