good tip

Hi.is this sentence true?she has extensive knowledge about her career. Or shuld we use an before extensive? Thankyou

Hi Mohammed.
I think the sentence is good grammatically. Using "an" will make it sounds as if it is a specific or particular knowledge about her career, whilst the emphasis here is on general knowledge about her career. The sentence sounds same like "she has broad knowledge..."
Thanks

Hello Mohammad56,

The sentence looks fine to me without 'an'. However, it is difficult to comment with absolute certainty without knowing the full context.
