Test 3 - Section 4 - Cam 10 Listening:

"Create..... to make expectation clear"

So if I fill "structure" is it a wrong grammar? I mean if I write a singular word is this case I have to put "a" or "the" before the word right?

I'm confused !!

You can use 'structure' as an abstract, uncountable noun, and it can then be used without specifying 'a' or 'the'.

nhung 312I mean if I write a singular word is this case I have to put "a" or "the" before the word right?

Yes. These are correct:

Create a structure...
Create the structure...

The plural form does not require an article:
Create structures...


This is "structure" as non-count:

Your essay must have good structure.

But this sentence does not make sense. I don't think you copied it correctly.,

"Create structures to make expectation clear"


Besides, "expectation" must be plural also.

oh yes thank you I got it but the right answer based on Cambridge IELTS 10 was "structures" so it means if in the Listening test I have to write exactly what I heard right? I wonder sometimes in IELTS Listening test it has 2 options for correct answer like "achievement/achievements" but sometimes just "structures" not allow to answer "structure". I can tell from Test3-Section4 - Listening Cam 10. I really don't understand?? Any explanation please??

'Structures' could possibly make sense - it depends on the context and as I don't know the test, I can't comment more! Either way, you wouldn't need 'a' or 'the' as determiners.
