Solution

The correct option is D no article / the
An indefinite article is used when we are talking generally about something whereas a definite article is used when we are talking about something specific.
The indefinite articles are 'a' and 'an'. An is used before a word starting with a vowel or vowel sound. A is used before a word starting with a consonant or consonant sound.
A definite article is an article that tells the uniqueness of something.
'The' is the only definite article.
The first blank won't take any article as the use of prison here indicates its primary purpose. The second blank shall take 'the' as Tracey's father went to the prison Tracey was in.
The correct answer is D) no article / the.
Tracey has been in prison for a year. Last Sunday his father went to the prison to see him.
