    Which one is correct?

    1) Fill in the blanks with correct form of adjectives given in brackets.

    2) Fill in the blanks with THE correct form of THE adjectives given in THE brackets.

    And in this sentence " The lion was getting impatient and swore to kill all animals the next day." Why article THE has not been used here?. Shouldn't it be " to kill all THE animals" because in the story, it is understood that we are talking about the animals living in the forest?

    regards...

    If they are talking about the animals living in the forest, then, yes, you are right, it should have been all the animals.

    1.I think we should say :

    -Fill in each blank with a correct form of THE adjective given in brackets.

    - Fill in the blanks with THE correct forms of THE adjectives given in brackets.


    2.to kill all animals => We don't use "the" in this case because "all animals" here means "any animals" (in general meaning)
