    #include <iostream> 
    #include <ctime>
    using namespace std; 
    
    int main()
    {
    const char* article[5]={"the", "a", "one", "some", "any"}; 
    const char* noun[5]={"boy", "girl", "dog", "town", "car"}; 
    const char* verb[5]={"drove", "jumped", "ran", "walked", "skipped"}; 
    const char* preposition[5]={"to", "from", "over", "under", "on"}; 
    
    srand((unsigned)time(NULL));
    cout<<*(article+(rand()%5)); 
    cout<<" "; 
    cout<<*(noun+(rand()%5)); 
    cout<<" "; 
    cout<<*(verb+(rand()%5)); 
    cout<<" ";
