Lightning or electrical storm

Hi, Ahmed,

A- electrical storm 

B- electric storm

C- lightning 


Thank you

Both 'A' and 'B' mean the same thing and are correct choices here. See here:

'Lightning' doesn't work here because it is an uncountable noun, so it isn't preceded by 'a/an'. 'A lightning storm' and 'a thunder storm' are also possible answers here.

BTW, I remember seeing  that question before and I know that the model answer is: 'electrical storm'. 'Electrical storm' is the only choice that is mentioned in our curriculum, but -of course- that doesn't mean that the other choices are wrong. Regrettably, most of our outside books are full of mistakes.
