    Dear Teacher,

    I am writing to seek your advice regarding the use of articles in the following sentence:

    "The review should take into consideration the unique characteristics of profile of local people, legal system and cultural background of China."

    Question: Is it necessary to add articles like "a" or "the" before terms like "Profile", "local people", 'legal system", and "cultural background"?

    Thank you in advance for your advice!

    With best wishes,
    Ily

    Question: Is it necessary to add articles like "a" or "the" before terms like "Profile", "local people", 'legal system", and "cultural background"? No - but the sentence is not well phrased:

    "The review should take into consideration the unique characteristics of the profile of Chinese legal systems, cultural background and local peoples."

    Thank you in advance for your advice!
