- Difference between 'all' and 'all the' 4 answers
In a mail from my professor, I read
you need to specify all the fields.
Here, he gave us a form with about 25 fields. He asked us to fill out the fields.
I'm skeptical about the usage of the in his statement. I assume that it's used when we are particular about a single object, not for a group of objects (plural).
I smell something odd with professor's sentence. Am I right?
