Use of None, Some, Any, Many

Today we will learn how to construct some English sentences. For this we will use ‘None, Some, Any, Many’ etc. There are many who cannot use them properly. I will try to convince them so that they will not go wrong any day.

Use of None

One thing you should know – None is used as group of people or things, it is also used as Singular and Plural.

  • None of us want that.
  • I like none of them.
  • None of us saw it.
  • None of it was real.
  • None of this is true.
  • None of them are busy.
  • None of them is alive.
  • None of us is perfect.

It’s none of your business.

When one of us asks about something personal and that person has no right to know. Even if he asks you can use this Phrase.

Here is one thing to keep in mind – When talking about two people or objects we will use “Neither of” instead of using ‘None of’.

For example –

  • Neither of us forgot about it.
  • Neither of them has a car.
  • Neither of my parents is a teacher.
  • Neither of them can cook.
  • I chose neither of them.
