I was chatting with my boss and asking him about the correct way of reporting my working hours. I realized that I don't know what kind of article I should use in my question.
- George, what is ['a/'the'/'zero article'] correct way of reporting my working time?
Which article would be right here and why?
Intuitively, I think it should be 'the' because the question describes something unique (though in fact I used the indefinite article 'a'). How could this question be rephrased to use each of the articles (the, a/an, zero article)?
Can you recommend some grammar resources for reading about articles? Feel free to give me some general advice how to become more familiar this part of English grammar.
