    there's no way

    Which are correct:

    1) There's no way I will do something like that.

    2) No way I will do something like that.
    3) No way will I do something like that.

    4) In no way I will do something like that.

    5) In no way will I do something like that.

    The first three are supposed to mean the same and '4' and '5' are supposed to mean the same. (I think there is a difference between the meaning of the first three and that of the second two.)

    '4' sounds incorrect to me.

    I don't like '3' either.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Happy New Year.

    Re: there's no way

    #3 is a truncated version of #1; you may hear it colloquially.
