    had not sufficient time

    Hi,

    Which one is correct?

    He had no sufficient time. OR
    He had not sufficient time.

    I think "He had no..." is correct.

    Re: had not sufficient time

    He had insufficient time.
    He did not have sufficient time.

    Those two cover what you need.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
