a unique or an unique

Hello,

@Sidhartha, your friend Ritvik has asnwered your query well. I would like to explain the concept better.
The word ‘unique’, although starts with the vowel ‘u’, has the consonant sound ‘y’. That is the reason why the word ‘unique’ is written as ‘a unique’, and not ‘an unique’.

 
Examples of vowel sounds are: an umbrella, an apple, an orange, etc.
Examples of consonant sounds are: a university, a euphemism, a euphoria, etc.
 
@Ritvik, keep up the spirit of helping our fellow students. Bravo!
Hope this helps!
