I don't understand when to use the i or ann in the sentence

What is the difference between an-dràsta and a-nis?

Am Faclair Beag to the rescue:

a-nis: 1 now (as opposed to previously) 2 now then, next

an-dràsta: now, this minute

As I understand it: He's well now (and he was sick last week) -- comparison: a-nis. It's thundering now (at this moment, at this point in time): an-dràsta.

Or, she was a junior last year, but she's a senior now -- comparison: a-nis. Who is the queen of England now? (at this point in time, at the moment): an-dràsta.

An-dràsta literally means "at this time" -- see: https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/an-dr%C3%A0sta
