    "a" b/w Adj and noun

    Hi ..
    I don't know about this ... I think it is difficult..

    1-It's too precious a time to waste.
    2-Life is too valuable a thing to be.…
    3-It is too small a thing that You should…
    4-they don’t like to see such small thing.

    Q\ When to use "a" before the noun?

    Hello Gamma, welcome to UE!

    The structures are as follows:

    1. too small a thing
    2. so small a thing
    3. such a small thing

    Thus your #4 also requires an "a".

    All the best,
