    I would like to ask a question about 'nothing'

    How are you?
    I would like to ask a question about 'nothing'.
    Does 'Nothing' of the plural nouns fine like the sentence below?

    Nothing of the apartments were damaged.

    Thank you ^^

    Re: I would like to ask a question about 'nothing'

    I'm not sure what you're trying to say but "Nothing of the apartments ..." is not grammatical.

    None of the apartments were damaged. (Damage occurred to no apartments.)
    Nothing in the apartments was damaged. (None of the contents of any of the apartments was damaged.)
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
