Use of ‘an’ vs ‘a’ [closed]

I am a little confused around the usage of an vs a

I know the basic vowel rule but the following are the usages that confuse me.Can someone please tell which of the following are correct and the corresponding language rules –

  • Success Factors….an SAP company

  • it’s an year long process

  • I only want a yes for an answer

Answer

Here are the proper rules:

Success Factors….an SAP company

it’s a year long process

I only want a yes for an answer**

But watch out for the vowel rules – they’re not always so straightforward:

  • An 800 number
  • A unanimous vote
  • An unanticipated result
  • An honest decision.
  • An x-mas tree
