D

Solution

The correct option is A no article
  1. An/A' is used as an indefinite article for a thing or person when the reader doesn't know which one we are referring to out of many nouns. It states the random nature of the subject.
  2. 'The' is used as a definite article for a thing or person when the reader knows which one we are exactly referring to. It states the specific nature of the subject.
Option B is correct as the blank requires no article to carry out the meaning of the sentence. Butter is an uncountable noun. Option D is incorrect because 'An' is used with a word having a vowel sound. Option C is incorrect as 'The butter' means particular butter that the readers are aware of. Option A is incorrect as 'A butter' implies any random single butter.
