    Hi, I would like to know. Are my sentences grammatically correct or not correct? I have written my sentences below.

    1. There is no any possibility the small truck standing near that house. I think the people who live in the house are loading something into the truck. so the truck standing there.

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm afraid your first sentence doesn't make sense. I can't even guess what it means.

    The second sentence is fine.

    The last phrase is not a sentence at all. Again, I don't know what you are trying to say.

    Re: verification.

    The first sentence is still hard to understand. If the truck is standing there, being loaded, how can it be that there is no possibility that there is a truck there?

    I'd say "onto" the truck, but "into" isn't wrong.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    If your sentences are independent of each other, how about, "There is no possibility that there is a truck standing near the house, because I looked outside a few minutes ago" and "I think the people who live in that house are moving out, because they are loading.........". If your sentences refer to the same situation, they do not make sense, because there is "no truck" and "they are loading etc." Help us, najubudeen .
