Hi everybody:

I've seen the negative sentence below in a book and I've not understood it's meaning. Please help me.

"There's not an onion in the house.":shock:

Does it mean "The number of onions in the house is zero" or "The number of onions in the house is not one and may be two, three, etc"?

Thanks a lot.
