Direction: Choose the correct article from the bracket (A or An)
I got __ pen today.

  1. A
  2. An


A singular noun must always include the article 'a' or 'an', however a plural common noun can have 'the' to particularize it.

The correct answer is: A

    Before a consonant word or any vowel with a consonant sound, the article 'a' is used. In addition, the article 'an' is also used before words that start with a vowel (a, e, I, o, u) or the first letter of a consonant word that has vowel sound. 'I got a pen today', here 'a' is used before word pen that start with a consonant.
