There are three articles in English language -- a, an and the.

We use 'a' when the noun we are referring to begins with a consonant (b, c, d, f, g, h, j, k, l, m, n, p, q, r, s, t, v, w, x, y or z).
"a city" and "a factory"

We use 'an' when the noun we are referring to begins with a vowel (a, e, i, o, u) and also when the noun does not begin with a vowel, but still has a beginning vowel sound.
an owl, an apple, an Indian, an hour

We use 'the' when we know that the listener knows or can work out which particular person or thing we are talking about. We also use 'the' when we have already mentioned the thing that we are talking about. Examples:
My friend owns 'a' boat. 'The' boat is huge. I dropped a coin into 'the' water.

Directions: Write the articles that complete these sentences correctly (answers are case sensitive!). Write five more example sentences each for the articles 'a', 'an', and 'the'. As a homework, read a book and find and write sentences containing articles.
