In the context of article usage, a specific noun is something or someone known to you. 
1. I want the apple from the fruit basket. 
(Which apple? The apple from the basket, and not any other apple.)

2. The pen you are searching is in the pencil box. 
(Which pen? The one that I am searching, and not any other pen.)

3. I know the boy you are talking about. 
(Which boy? The one you are talking about, although there may be several other boys around.)
A general sentence is a statement made in general. 
1. The prices of vegetables are going up. 
'The' has been used with the plural 'prices' to talk about inflation in general. 

2. A cow is a domestic animal. 
'A' has been used with the singular 'cat' to talk about cats in general. 
3. I want an apple.
(Which apple? Any apple will do.)
