Indefinite Article with an Uncountable Noun Error

Articles in English can be tough for learners of English whose first language does not have articles or uses articles differently. Do you find articles difficult? Try this one question quiz. 

Do you know the answer? 

Answer:

 She has a brown skin
 She has the brown skin
 She has brown skin.
? Don’t use an indefinite article with uncountable nouns like “skin”. It is not something you normally count.   

Other examples of this error:

  1. I have a homework to do tonight.
  2. She called because had an information to tell me.
  3. Can you make me a software?
