    2- He saves money by walking to work. Another way he saves is by buying second-hand clothes.
    3- There isn't enough money in my bank account to go on holiday this year.

    My answers are :
    1-There isn't any millionaire in the world who gives away all his or her money. (You've changed the meaning from the example above. The first example says there are few, you're saying there are none.)
    2- He saves money by walking to work. He also saves money by buying second-hand clothes. Good.
    3- There isn't enough money in my bank account to go on holiday this year. Good.

    Are my answers correct? Are there alternative answers? See above.
    Thanks in advance
    You're welcome!

    Re: many / any - aren't /isn't ...

    Thanks but The question says that there are three grammatical mistakes in the following sentences. if you say that the first sentence I posted is correct, so which one of these is wrong.
    4- There is very little money in my bank account but there's quite a lot in my sister's.
    5- All the money in the world can't buy you love.
    6- Quite a few people don't like bargaining.
    7- She paid one hundred thousand of dollars for it.

    I guess
    6 is wrong. Am I right ?

    regards

    unrelated question to grammar .. Who deleted my first post ? Why it is replaced by the word " Hell " ?

    Please teachers. Which one is wrong ?

    What about the last one ?

    Is it correct to say ?
    one hundred thousand of dollars. or it should be
    one hundred thousand dollars. - without the preposition " of "
