    Hi Gillnetter
    Thank you for your help. I'm sorry that I didn't make my questions clear. Now, I'm trying again. Please help me one more time. Thanks a lot.

    For Question A, I read the sentence in the following dialogue, and I don't really know what the word "it" refers to in the sentence.

    Linda: Wow. There are a lot of spooky toys.
    Peter: Sure. We have a ghost mask, a red nose, long nails....
    Sam: Who has vampire teeth?
    Peter: I do. Here you are.
    Sam: Thanks. But these are black. I need white teeth.
    Peter: Why? Black teeth are cool.
    Sam: Itís dark in the spooky house. You canít see them there.
    Linda: Well, any good ideas?
    Peter: What about a vampire
    without teeth?
    Sam: Uh?
    Peter: Our vampireís very, very old. Haha.

    For Question B, I wonder if "any" can be followed by a singular countable noun in negative sentences or questions.
