I'm trying to confirm my understanding of something in a fairly technical document.
The generalised statement is "For a %noun% the %noun% will have %attribute%."
My first instinct would be that this would apply to the general case for that type of noun due to the use of "will have".
eg. "For a car the car will have wheels." as all cars (at least drivable ones) do have wheels.
On my second reading I reconsidered, would the use of "a" as in "For a" make the sentence applicable to only a specific case?
eg. "For a car the car will be red." in the case of having seen a red car we can say that there does exist a car that will be red, we are not making a claim about the general case for the colour of all cars.
Could anyone let me know, are either correct? Is one or the other preferable? Would specifically one be correct within the context of being used in a technical document?
Thanks in advance!
