    same as, the same as

    Pls, help with these sentences:

    It is not ............mine.

    the key says the answer is 'the same as' and not 'same as', why?

    Difference btw
    That's not the way to do it.
    and
    That's (or There's) no way to do it.



    and
    I didn't see many people there.


    in what case would I use 'many of' in the same sentence?

    You need a noun or pronoun as object if you use same as.
    You can say: It is not same as(equal to) cash/me/you/him/Sunday
    But ‘mine’ is a possessive pronoun, so you have to use “the same as” which means: exactly like mine(not me)

    Difference btw

    That's not the way to do it. Here 'not'is used as adverb to express negation, denial, refusal. It means That is not the method/practice to do it.
    and
    (That's or) There's no way to do it. Use There is a/no way to do it. Here ‘no’ is used as adjective, meaning: not any; not one; not a, It is used before a noun to convey the opposite of the noun's meaning

    and
    I didn't see many people there as many of I knew.

    in what case would I use 'many of' in the same sentence?
