    Question meaning of 'hardly any'

    I have a question in connection with "hardly any" .does it mean "absolutely noT","no other"? or does it mean "few,little" for example : "Hardly had any other artists of his time created as many works as picasso" .does it mean that no other artists had created as many works as picasso?

    Re: meaning of 'hardly any'

    Hardly any means "not very many; only a few".

    Don't put a space before a period ("full stop" in BrE), a comma, a semicolon, or a colon. Always put a space after each of these punctuation marks. Always capitalize the first letter of a sentence and of a proper noun like "Picasso". Here's a corrected version of your sample sentence: Hardly any of Picasso's contemporaries created as many works as he did.
