    I wrote my English as a Second Language exam today.
    I got this question "French drink wine - Use the correct article to correct the sentence".
    I wrote "The French drink Wine",is it correct ? I am baffled.
    BTW I don't drink wine

    It epends on the actual wording of the question and context.

    The French drink wine is the correct answer, generally.

    If the purpose / focus of the sentence was the actual wine, then the wine is the better option. So; Who drank the wine, the French or Germans ?

    If the emphasis was on the French people, so question would be; Do the French drink wine ?

    Germans only drink beer, always beer. Nothing else. So it's a rhetorical question

    It has nothing to do with inflation it has to do with a subject that can't be discussed on BHW and that is religion and politics,
