I confuse "a" and "the"
Somebody send me a email for my email. I want to say "thank you".
So, which is right sentence
"Thank you for a response." or "Thank you for the response."
Thank you for response.
The is used when you are talking about a specific response. You might request a response. Then, you use "a" because you don't know what (if any) response you will get. After you get the response, then it is a certain specific response: the response that you received.
