I'd appreciate it if someone would answer my question. Thank you in advance.

A: I like the summer better than the winter.

B: The morning comes when dawn ends the night.

C: The morning follows the night.

Are A, B and C all correct?

Would it be correct if you omit "the" from "the summer" and "the winter" in A?

Would it be correct if you omit "the" from "the morning" and "the night" in B and C?

    I'll just talk about the first one. It has some implied words, so it is correct. But the other way is correct also.

    I like the summer (season) better than the winter (season).
    I like summer better than winter.


    It's common for people, like teachers, who don't work during summer to say "I have the summer off."

    Thank you kentix. I see your idea.
    How about my second question?
    Would it be correct if you omit "the" from "the morning" and "the night" in B and C?
