        Janet…Number 8 needs ‘the’ the Atlantic ocean, the Pacific ocean, the Black Sea, the Dead sea. We always need ‘the’ with oceans and seas.

        Also number 10 needs ‘the’ The Amazon. Names of landscapes need ‘the’ The Sahara Desert, The Rocky mountains.

        Thanks for answering!

      Where is the best place to live?

    • huseyn

      He is from Solomon islands.

      • LOIEnglish

        Here we need to use THE because islandS is plural.

    • huseyn

      She is from Island.

      • LOIEnglish

        In this case we need to use ‘AN’ because we are speaking in a generality. She is from AN island.

    • huseyn

      Where is a battery on an iPhone?

      • LOIEnglish

        Here you need THE because you are talking about specific battery. Where is THE battery on an iphone.

    • huseyn

      We went to the Atlantic Ocean.

    • huseyn

      The Lake Michigan is near Chicago.

      • LOIEnglish

        We don’t put THE in front of lakes: Lake Michigan is near Chicago.

    • huseyn

      We want to visit the Amazon.

    • huseyn

      I love playing basketball.
