I agree with all of your choices, but I see you put a "the" in #4. I would have put one there too, but it wasn't one of your choices. Is that okay?

Hello. Here are some comments on your sentences.

1. Correct. You can't use a in this sentence because the noun juice is uncountable. We do not use a with uncountable nouns because it means one of a class.

2. Correct in both cases. the word cup is countable. One object of the class: cup. The second gap cannot have a because sugar is uncountable. It cannot have the either because the listener (or reader) doesn't have a previous reference. It hasn't been mentioned before.

3. Correct. I want one of the class: egg sandwich. Sandwich is a countable noun.

4. Correct. Jam is uncountable, we cannot use a. In the first part we are also talking about jam in general, that's why we do not use the. In the second sentence the use of the is correct because it has been mentioned before. There is a previous reference. In the last gap, the use of a is correct because we mean one object of the class bottle.

5. Correct. No article because you mean honey in general.

We use the when we talk about something or someone specific.

I hate cats. (general)

I'll feed the cats. (specific)

We use the when the listener knows what thing or which person the speaker is talking about.

The Pope will visit Germany.

Pass me the salt, will you? (we can assume that in this sentence the listener knows the speaker means the salt on the table)
