    I saw none/no one

    You said there were many kids in the room, but I saw ______ in it.

    The given answer is 'none'. Is 'no one' fine for the blank too? Or is 'no one' better than 'none'?

    Could I ask native speakers to help me please? A lot of thanks.

    Re: I saw none/no one

    Using either none or no one is OK; no one sounds better thought, and this sound more natural:
    You said there were many kids in the room, but there wasn't anyone there.
