    sentence problem

    I. He is nice boy.
    II. That is nice boy.

    Do I need "a" after "is" in both sentences? Pls.

    I. I have not any DVDS.

    Can I omit "any" in this sentence ? Pls.

    I.That is nice boy.

    This sentence is ok? No need "a" after "is"? why, pls.

    II. I haven't any DVDs.

    Why cannot omit "any"? Pls.

    Re: sentence problem

    "That is a nice boy" is grammatically possible, but "He is a nice boy" is much more likely.

    Say:
    I don't have any DVDs.
