Hi there, What is the difference between A and The in the following sentences?
- No other animal is as tall as a/the giraffe.
- A/The Inland Taipan's venom is the most venomous one in the world.
My grammar book says when we want to talk about a race or a whole class we use the. But still I am unable to decide a or the which one I should use. Can any please explain the meaning of each of the sentences using a and the. And which one do you think is more appropriate?
