    Hi Chjakhan, welcome to the forum!

    The word "not" is only used as an adverb. It is most often used to negate verbs. Sometimes, "not" becomes part of a contracted verb: doesn't (does not), don't (do not), wouldn't (would not), etc.

    I will not (won't) do that.
    She is not (isn't) home.


    The word "no" has several uses. As an adjective, it can modify a noun:

    No evidence was found by the police.
    He reached no conclusions.

    As an adverb or interjection, "no" can be used to preface a remark, often in answer to a question:

    No, I won't be coming to the party.
    No! Stop saying that.

    It can also be used with comparative adjectives:

    He felt no better after the treatment.

    You see lots of welcome-backs here? Remember it's not only the animals you treat every day--no wonder you've been busy out there-- but also all the people here that love you!

    So, sensei, could you please help me out of this question when you have some spare time?

    Remember. I said "when you have spare time ."

    Thanks!
