    Not any.

    I'm wondering if all these answers are correct:

    How many apples have we got?
    a. Not any.
    b. Not many.
    c. None.

    Thank you in advance for your replies :)

    Re: Not any.

    You could use "Not one" to give the same meaning as a and c.

    Re: Not any.

    "Not many" is a possible answer as well.

    Yes, I only said we wouldn't use a. "Not many" was option b.
