Articles with countable and uncountable nouns exercises

The 3 articles in English are a, an and the. 

The student needs to choose thing by-thing which one of the articles to utilize. 
The word a (which turns into a when the following word starts with a vowel - a, e, I, o, u) is known as the inconclusive article on the grounds that the thing it runs with is uncertain or general. 
The significance of the article an is like the main, however one is more grounded and gives more accentuation. 
It is conceivable to state I have a book or I have one book, yet the second sentence underscores that I don't have a few or some other number of books. 

The word the is known as the positive article and demonstrates a particular thing. The contrast between the sentences I sat on a seat and I sat on the seat is that the second sentence alludes to a specific, particular seat, an extraordinary seat. 

Numerous things, particularly solitary types of countable things must have an article. In English, it isn't conceivable to state I sat on the seat without an article, yet a decisive or possessive descriptive word can be utilized rather than an article as in the sentences I sat on that seat and I sat on his seat.
