    none/no one

    We were hungry, but none/no one had any money.

    Do both none and no one work for the sentence?

    Thanks a lot.

    Re: none/no one

    Not a teacher

    Right. However, it may be preferable to me to use "none" in the structure "none of us".

    Re: none/no one

    Use either no-one or none of us. ...none on its own is incorrect.
