I saw the following sentence in OALD:
He was forced to relinquish control of the company.
When writing in English, in some cases I don't know if the definite article 'the' should be used or not. For instance, I'm not sure if it's grammatical to write
He was forced to relinquish the control of the/that company.
But it doesn't sound incorrect to me.
Which one sounds more natural/correct to native English speakers? Which one is preferred by grammarians?
