Reply to "The use of "Which""

The article would be grammatically correct. However, with lists of items we generally don't use articles:

In support of your contention that you acquired units in the ABC unit trust, you provided the following documents:

- Swiss bank history report ...

- Tax return ...

- Sworn statement ...

I agree with Gustavo that the article can be left out in this type of list of noun phrases, where the items are listed on separate lines. If the list appears as a series in the sentence, however, articles will be needed. That is, even corporate accountants cannot say that they provided report, return, and statement.
