Grammar Rule


I saw a lion and an elephant at the zoo.
The lion was scary.


We use 'a' before a word that starts with a consonant. We use 'an' before a word that starts with a vowel.
I saw a lion and an elephant.

Be careful!

First we use ‘a’ or ‘an’. After we use ‘the’.
She had a cheese sandwich and crisps for lunch. She didn’t like the sandwich.
We stayed in an old hotel. There was a swimming pool in the hotel.

We say... We don’t say...

He played tennis with Ben. (NOT He played tennis with the Ben.)
They had breakfast at 9 o’clock. (NOT They had a breakfast at 9 o'clock.)

(Some words don't have an article. We don't usually use articles for countries, meals or people.)

In this game there is so much fun

Ihave got  full marks in both games.Yippee!

I want to print the result % marks please suggest me how can it possible ?

Hi AgentPinkFlute,
I'm afraid it's not possible to print the results directly from the game, but you can try to do it like this:
On your computer there should be a special button called 'Print Screen'. this will take a picture of the screen. You can then paste this picture into another program like word, and you can print it.
I hope this works!

Best wishes,
