    All of them will not come. Not all of them will come.

    1. All of them will not come.

    2. Not all of them will come.


    Are the both same in meaning?

    How about "I didn't invite all of them"? Can it be understood as

    "I invited some of them" or "I invited none of them"?

    I didn't invite all of them = I invited some of them.
    I didn't invite any of them = I invited none of them.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
