How do we differentiate between saying 'this milk' and 'this is milk' in Arabic? I answered with the first one and it was marked wrong.

this milk: هذا الحليب this is milk: هذا حليب

also, this is the milk: هذا هو الحليب

هذا الحليب

can also mean 'this is the milk' if used as an independent sentence (uncommon but grammatically correct).

Thanks for clarifying. This one tripped me up all the time.

I understand the grammatical difference between 'this milk' and 'this is the milk' but cannot hear the Al in this exercise?

If you listen carefully, it falls directly after the "hadh" sound.
