Answered by Expert
'A' and 'An' are indefinite articles used before singular unspecific nouns. 
An apple a day keeps the doctor away. 
In this sentence, we are referring to an apple  and a day in general, as a fruit and a twenty-four hour period. 

'The' is the definite article used before specific nouns.
The fruits are in the basket on the table.
In this sentence, we are referring to fruits in a specific basket which is on the table.
