    You have to answer the question I asked with a full sentence. When you do that, you have the answer you want - that is, a sentence with "None" in it that means the same as your question.

    Right.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
