Question

Complete the sentence using the correct articles with the help of the hint in the bracket:
Do you remember the story about the thief who tried to steal _____ diamond from _____ tall girl? (Kohinoor diamond, Maria)


A
a, an
loader
B
the, an
loader
C
the, the
loader
D
an, a
loader

Solution

The correct option is D the, the
The sentence suggests that the speaker believes that the listener already knows what he is referring to and the hint also indicates that. In this case, we use a definite article, 'the' for both the nouns. Hence option C is the correct answer. Option A is incorrect because the nouns are not indefinite, but specific and definite. Option B is incorrect because the noun 'tall' is specific and definite, and does not begin with a vowel. Option D is incorrect because both the nouns are definite and specific and don't need indefinite articles like the ones mentioned.
