Thread: A/An/One

    Cool A/An/One

    Hello again.
    Please, let me know the difference between a/an/one. I mean, I only use "one" when I'm talking about the quantity of something?

    Example: I have a friend. / I have one friend.
    They have one child. / They have a child.
    There is a TV in my house. / There is one TV in my house.

    Are both of them right? Is there any difference?

    Re: A/An/One

    They are all right, but using 'one' you are stressing the number of items, while using 'a/an' you are indicating the existence of any.
