    Question None of them and No one with people

    Hi. My class and I were stumped today...we are using Cambridge's English in Mind 2 and need to fill in some blanks, but don't know what is correct.

    1. I invited lots of people to my party, but ___________ came!
    5. I've got lots of friends at school, but ___________ are as tall as me.

    We are supposed to complete the sentences with words from a table of determiners and have narrowed it down to "none of them" or "no one". Which is correct for each one, and why???

    I hope you are there and can answer--thanks so much!

    1. I invited lots of people to my party, but _no one/none/none of them_ came! All 3 are correct.
    5. I've got lots of friends at school, but _none/none of them__ are as tall as me. You can not use 'no one' with the plural verb "are".
