Let's assume I have a lot of everything (motherboards,glasses etc) From specific to not-specific
The motherboard is broken but NOT A motherboard is broken
A Glass is broken and the glass is broken - Both are correct
A chair is broken and the chair is broken - Both are correct
A tree is broken and the tree is broken - Both are correct
It's all according to my New Zealander teacher. What makes a motherboard so special? What if I would talk about a PC?
