A1) I haven't got any money.
B) I don't have money.
B1) I don't have any money.
Are all the questions and answers possible?
cheers
For me all the examples are OK; however, I think, there are some differences in meaning. For example,
A) I haven't got money. - generally, (it's usual)
A1) I haven't got any money. - I haven't got any money at all.
Are students in the classroom? - generally, in generic sense (maybe there should be "a classroom")
I am not sure if I have to use the structure "are THERE" or I can leave "there" and what would be the difference in meaning in this case.
