Articles (A, An, The)

A , an and the are called articles. A and an are used before singular nouns only . A is used before nouns that begin with a consonants sound and an is used before a vowel sound. A and an are also used only before  countable nouns.
For example-an apple , a pear , an umbrella

Use of A, An , The:

Some exceptions: Articles a, an the rules.

A is used before a word that begins with ‘U’, if it sounds like ‘You’.
For example: A university, but An umbrella.

An is used before a word that begins with an ‘h’, but where the ‘h’ is silent. This is because the sound is that of a vawel like, ‘o’ in ‘onest’.
For example:An honest man.

The is always used when we refer to something specified.
For example:The sparrow is a common bird.
The is also used before certain secific proper nouns.
For example:The Indian Ocean
