1. I don't have a little money.
2. I don't have little money.
3. I don't have some money.
4. I don't have any money.
5. I have a lot of money.
(Are all grammatical? Does # 1 mean #5?)
Numbers 4 and 5 are fine. The rest are grammatical, but not used.
6. Do you have much money? - Not much.
(Is the answer correct?)
Yes, this is fine.
7. He has too much money in his wallet.
8. He has too many books in his bag.
9. He has too money in his wallet.
(from 7 to 9: #9 is incorrect, isn't it? 7 and 8 are correct, aren't they?)
Yes, 9 is incorrect, and 7 and 8 are fine.
10. She will be thirteen a year later.
11. She will be thirteen after a year.
12. She will be thirteen when a year passes.
(10-12: Are all grammatical?)
Yes, all are grammatical. Depending on the context, 11 sounds the best.
13. Mina cares about the earth.
14. Mina worries about the earth.
15. Mina is worried about the earth.
16. Mina is concerned about the earth.
(Are the four the same?)
All are grammatical, but they don't mean exactly the same thing. To care about something means she's concerned and is doing whatever she can to help. To worry about something does not mean that she's doing something about it.
17. A: How far was the forest?
B1: It was 10 kilometers away.
B2: It took 10 minutes to get to the forest.
B3: It was not so far away.
B4: It was near.
(Are the answers all correct? Would you let me know correct answers?)
All the answers are correct, but B2 is not referring to distance as much as the others. Also B3 and B4 are vague, not specific as B1 is.
"I don't have a little money" would imply that you have a lot! "I have little money" would then imply that you don't have much.
