    Very little money was raised by the charity appeal (response)

    Write a new sentence similar in meaning to the original
    Very little money was raised by the charity appeal (response)
    The charity appeal received little response. Is it ok?

    The first says that the charity raised very little money. Yours doesn't say that. Whether your answer is correct or not depends on how the questioner understands 'similar'. I would have to mark you correct, because "similar meaning" doesn't mean "the same meaning" - although I think that having to write a new sentence with same meaning would be a better exercise; and perhaps that's what is meant.
