Just as plastic causes problems for our planet, articles cause all kinds of problems for students of English, especially when their first language doesn’t really have them (Indonesian!).
In a more recent practice activity the focus is on sustainable development and how that relates to the envirnoment. Meanwhile if you’re not sure about how to use articles in English (a, an, the), read this first, and then try the activity below!
In addition to the instruction given, if no article is suitable then don’t make a selection. Good luck!
number of plastic items entangled on coral reefs varies immensely among different regions currently being surveyed – with lowest levels found in Australia and highest in Indonesia. estimated 80% of marine plastic debris originates from land. variation of plastic on reefs corresponds to estimated levels of plastic litter entering ocean from nearest coast. According to projections, between 2010 and 2025 amount of plastic debris on Australian coral reefs will increase by only about 1%, whereas for Myanmar it will almost double.
