a. 1
b. 2
c. 3
d. 4
e. 5

Use ‘a’ before ‘job’. ‘Job’ is a singular countable noun, hence, ‘a’ should be used.

The correct sentence should be: Ankit prefers self-employment to a job in any office.


Before a word beginning with consonant sound, ‘a’ should be used.

A boy, A hole, A horse, A woman, A reindeer, A man

Similarly, if a word begins with a vowel but gives sound of a consonant, ‘a’ should be used before it.
A university, A union, A European, A unicorn, A useful article, A one-eyed man, a one-rupee note
