    such a hard time

    Hi

    I`ve been trying to find out which is the best answer to the following sentence, but I think I need your help:

    We had ... hard time trying to persuade him that we gave up.
    1. such a
    2. a so
    3. such
    4. so

    I tend to choose the first answer, i.e. such a although I know that the noun time can be both countable and uncountable. If I take time as an experience, then I should choose such a, but I`m not sure though.
    What`s your opinion on that? Do I have to choose such hard time?


    Thank you very much.

    You are right. It is "such a hard time."
