There is a problem with the sentence you quote. It is not English. Something is missing. It should be (something like):hanuman_2000 wrote:Water is an important for our lives.
As water is uncountable noun, we can't use a or an.
so why 'AN' before important.
Water is an important resource for our lives.
In this case an refers to resource, which is countable. If the adjective important is removed, it becomes:
Water is a resource for our lives.
