'And if you buy the book it's your choice isn't it?' — 'Quite.'You can use quite in front of a or an when it is followed by an adjective plus noun. For example, you can say 'It's quite an old car' as well as 'The car is quite old', and 'It was quite a warm day' as well as 'The day was quite warm'. Note that, in sentences like these, quite comes in front of the indefinite article. You cannot say, for example, 'It's a quite old car'. Quite can be used to modify adjectives and adverbs, and is slightly stronger than fairly but less strong than very. Quite may suggest that something has more of a quality than expected. Nobody here's ever heard of it but it is actually quite common.
