  • English -

    The only one to quetion is 6.

  • English -

    1 and 2 -- mean the same.

    3 and 4 -- mean the same.

    5 is OK if you ad "your" before "health."

    6 is not used.

    7 and 7-1 mean about the same thing, but better phrasing would be this:
    Some are rich, but others are not.

    8 is very awkward.
    8-1 is better, but would be best this way: One is happy, but the other is not.

    Again, 9 is awkward.
    Best phrasing would be this:
    Some people are healthy, but others are not.

  • English (correction) -

    5 is OK if you add "your" before "health."
