    Default I did not

    You helped five of my students.

    1-And I did not help two others.

    2-And I did not help two of them.

    3-I did not help two of them.


    4-I did not help two others.

    5-There were two I did not help.


    6-There were two of them I did not help.

    Which of the sentences 1-6 are acceptable in this context?

    Which of them mean:
    a-I did help five and could not or refused to help two others
    which mean:
    b-I did not help five of your students. I only helped three. I did not help the other two.
    and which are:
    c-ambiguous?

    Gratefully,
    Navi.
