I remember I met him in ... May.
It was ... terrible May of 1938.

(a) -/the
(b) -/a
(c) -/-

I think (a) is correct here since there was one May in 1938.

1) Am I right about my option?
2) Are the indefinite article and zero article grammatically correct (possible) in this case too?

Thanks..

I remember I met him in May. :ok: zero correct

For the next one, a little context would help, but I give you two options...

It was a terrible May IN 1938. :ok:
It was the terrible May of 1938.
