Can I use the word "advertisement" with the article "a". I saw that in a sample of FCE exam and for me the correct should be "an advertisement". Am I right?

    You are right, and the FCE example is wrong. :)

    I hope that they don't confuse people with that example.

    Note: For the sake of those like myself who do not recognize the initials, please write out the name in full. ;)
