    No/None

    Hi Dear all,

    No student went on the trip due to the bad weather. (self-made)
    No students went to the trip due to the bad weather. (self-made)
    None of any student on the trip due to the bad weather. (self-made)
    None of any students on the trip due to the bad weather. (self-made)

    Is there any mistakes and differences (in meaning) in my sentences above? If any, please let me know what they are.

    No students went to the trip due to the bad weather. (self-made) Okay. A little better than the one above.
    None of any student on the trip due to the bad weather. (self-made) No. Not "None of any student" - that's 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.
