    Re: None of them/None of these

    Hello, satusher.

    Both "I like none of them." and "I like none of these." are grammatical, in my opinion.
    However, "All are ugly birds." doesn't sound quite right to me.
    I think "All of the birds are ugly." sounds much better.

    (I'm not a native speaker.)
