Direction: Choose the correct article from the bracket (A or An)
The boys are sitting on __ bench.

  1. A
  2. An


A singular common 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 a vowel sound. 'The boys are sitting on a bench', here 'a' is used before bench that start with a consonant.
