Is the sentence B not correct and is only A valid? Or are the both ok?

A. I'd like to know all the problems we've had so far.
B. I'd like to know the all problems we've had so far.

  • Sentence A is correct, Sentence B is incorrect. I will leave the answer to those that can answer why with a good explanation!

"All" is a determinative functioning usually as a predeterminer as in (A). In cannot be an adjective or function as an attributive modifier. Therefore, (B) is ungrammatical. However, you can use "whole", eg. "the whole problems".

  • You cannot use "the whole problems". "I'd like to know the whole problems we've had so far" is not correct.
