We decided to keep it a secret. Here, if i omit here "a", will the sentence still be correct?

And what's the necessity of "a" here?

Thank you in advance!


Yes, "a" can be omitted in this sentence and it means exactly the same thing. Technically "We decided to keep it a secret" is using "secret" as a noun and "We decided to keep it secret" is using "secret" as an adjective, but there's no difference in usage.

  • Thank you so much!
