a few Northern counties
« on: January 14, 2021, 07:28:02 am »
a. The result of the election will be determined by a few Northern counties of the state.
b. The result of the election will be determined by the few Northern counties of the state.


What is the difference between the meanings of the above sentences?

I think in (b) we are talking about all the Northern counties and in (a) about some of the Northern counties only.

Many thanks.
