Russian term or phrase: быстрый ответ
Здравствуйте, помогите, пожалуйста, с моментом в переводе выражения
"быстрый ответ"
подсказали перевести, как "prompt response"
Но мне кажется, что должен использоваться артикль "a prompt response".
Заранее спасибо.

Выражение:
Thank you very much for your attention/consideration and a prompt response.

Оригинал:

Добрый день!
