That is an exciting movie.
Correct answer: (b) an
Your answer was: [color=red]incorrect
That is the exciting movie.
Really, I can’t get it how come there’s “an” while there clearly should be “the”?!
Wiki says: “A definite article indicates that its noun is a particular one (or ones) identifiable to the listener. It may be the same thing that the speaker has already mentioned, or it may be something uniquely specified.”
It’s evidently that the speaker knows about the movie & has already received certain amount of strong impression about it. So, shall it be ‘the’ after all???
Or do I miss something?
May be an indefinite article here means: This is one of the exciting movies I had seen in my life?
