1.Excuse me, Can I ask you -------- questions.( a few). OK

2.I am going out for [the] A walk. I need -------- fresh air. (a little) OK but note, "a walk".

3.I can speak ----------- words of French, but I am not fluent. (a few) OK

4.She did not eat anything but she drank -------- water. (a little) OK

5.I think I can lift the box on my own. I need -------- help. (little)

Structually, it's okay but contextually and pragmatically, it's kind of funny, Hanuman. If/when someone offers help, it would sound a bit rude/strident to reply with, "I need little help."

5a. I think I can lift the box on my own. I don't need any help, thank you.

Hello,

When should we use the article 'a' in before of few/little/lot/couple. I am not clear when should we use 'a' in before these words?
