Based on information from police report you are a traitor.
Based on information from the police report you are a traitor.
Speaker/writer of this sentence expects you to know which police report he/she is talking/writing about. You can't know this just from this sentence, there would have to be earlier sentences or conversation.
Well, you could deliberately construct a context where the version with the definite article works:
There are two boxes in the room. This box (pointing to one) is big. This is the big box.
However, I would advise against making up more context to fit with an otherwise incorrect answer. Since in your title you specify the test as from a textbook for ...
Property can be a count noun, but in this sense it is not, so as a property doesn't make sense.
You could say
He treats his dog as property.
but it is much more natural to say
He treats his dog as his property.
This is an interesting problem case that you've brought up. I had not previously thought about the ambiguity that could arise when a noun is both countable and uncountable and can be paired with an adjective that has an alternate (negative) form starting with "un". Luckily, I think the main reason I've never thought about this is that I'm pretty sure it's ...
Definite noun phrases have different uses in English. A general usage is that the speaker uses a definite noun phrase when they assume that the hearer can identify the referent of the noun phrase.
I like the movie, Pulp Fiction.
The speaker assumes the hearer can identify the referent, that is, the hearer can identity which movie the speaker ...
If you want to introduce a movie which you think the listener does not know about, a more natural expression would be "I saw a movie called 'Pulp Fiction'". In your case, it should be "I like the movie, 'Pulp fiction'." because 'Pulp fiction' is in apposition with 'the movie' and 'the' acts as a pointer to 'Pulp fiction'.
It doesn't alter the use of 'the' ...
A screenshot is a picture of what is on a computer screen at a particular time, so I think there should be at least an article(the/a) before the 'screenshot'.
According to the meaning of your sentence, the most possibly appropriate one should be: "What is the name of the game in the screenshot?", since the speaker is asking about what the name of the game ...
Many nouns can be both countable and uncountable, depending on context.
An uncountable noun refers to an idea or a concept. A countable noun refers to a specific thing. So for example, I might say, "I like chocolate." I like chocolate in general. It's not that I like one particular piece of chocolate, but that I like chocolate in general. But if you were ...
Words denoting measureable quantities can usually be used as uncountable in some contexts.
One such context is after in, as a prepositional phrase qualifying another phrase to specify the property:
a drop in temperature
an increase in size
decreased in number
small in area
great in value
It is not a mistake to say "a subscription" but it is not normally what you mean.
The first example looks wrong to me. The word "subscription" should be used a countable noun, and so you need some article or determiner.
The second is correct. If a person had multiple subscriptions and the meaning was "you can cancel one of them". However this is ...
