Indefinite and definite articles: A/An/The

Hello everyone,
We are studying the comparative and superlative adjectives. Superlative adjectives use the definite article the, which is the most frequent word in English.

  • We use the definite article with a superlative adjective:
The rat is the most intelligent animal in the Chinese zodiac.
The dog is the most cheerful animal  in the Chinese zodiac.
  • We also use the definite article in front of a noun when we believe the hearer/reader knows exactly what we are referring to.
Open the laptop.   Pass me the ruler.   Give me the pencil-case.

Let's revise the different types of articles: Definite and indefinite.
