Hi there, can anyone please tell me how can rephrase the sentence without changing the meaning? Actually I want to replace the word "no one/nobobdy" without changing the meaning.


Here is the example:

  • There are many different animals in the world that no one/nobody even knows the exact number of existing species.

I think I can rephrase this sentence by this way:

  • There are many different animals in the world that everyone/everybody does not even know the exact number of existing species.

I think the above sentence is grammar but not natural. I want your opinions.


And I have one more question, I can't express my feelings in the sentence because I don't know which preposition I should use. Here is the sentence:

  • I think I can rephrase this sentence 'by/in' this way/ like this.

Your version is neither natural nor grammatical.
'... in this way' and '... like this' are possible. '... by this way' is not.

Could you please tell me how I can rephrase the sentence replacing "no one/nobody"? That would really help me.

There are so many different animals in the world that it's impossible for anyone to know the exact number of species.
