    zero points

    I'd give that person's table manners zero points

    Why is it zero points not zero point?

    Re: zero points

    Possibly because it's the same as no points.

    Re: zero points

    You need a full stop after "zero points".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: zero points

    Only "one" is singular.

    Re: zero points

    Because zero and its synonyms are plural.
