Note: The preposition will be bold, the OP will be italic.
1. I saw a rainbow above the house.
2. It was pretty, and in the rainbow were colors.
3. Those colors were red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet, and they were over the house too.
Did you see the words between the Preposition and the OP? These are words that tell what the Preposition is describing. (Think of it this way: Without the, an, or a, it would be like "above house". That doesn't make sense.
A, an, and the are articles.
