The rule is to use "A" before words, abbreviations, acronyms, or letters that begin with a consonant sound, regardless of their spelling.
> A dog
> A fish
> A university
> A utopia.

"An" is used before words, abbreviations, acronyms, or letters that begin with a vowel sound, regardless of their spelling.
> An idiot
> An element
> An honor
> An heirloom.

"The" is the definite article and is used to refer to specific objects.The first time you speak of something use "a or an", the next time you repeat that object use "the".
> I live in a house. The house is quite old and has four bedrooms.
> I ate in a Chinese restaurant. The restaurant was very good.

Hope you get it Smile

β€œa” should be used before words that begin with consonants (e.g., b, c ,d).
β€œan” should be used before words that begin with vowels (e.g., a,e,i).

Ramu but sometimes you have to add "the" at the beginning of the sentence, what is the trick for that?
