    you should use ( noun) , DOFFERENCE.

    the blank can only be filled with noun. because you have your verb in the sentence, dont you?

    here, make is the verb.
    if you wanted to use this sentence in a positive way, you could say:
    it MAKES no difference.
    and when you want to change it into negative, you can say:
    it DOES NOT MAKE difference. so, your verb is MAKE
