    Smile Not or No. It's no exception. it's not an exception.

    Hello everyone,

    Everything has its adv. and disadv, and Cars are not an/no exception.

    I want to know what is the difference between no and not.
    I wish I had better English, but I work hard to improve it. I'm studying for IGCSE, so I'm only interested in BrE.

    The main difference is that we don't say "... is not an exception". The accepted phrase is "... is/are no exception".

    Note also that you need to write words in full. "Adv." and "Disadv," are not recognised abbreviations.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
