Hi Laura - can you invert "n'avoir plus de" to form a question?

ie - Don't you have any money left?

This relates to:
N'avoir plus de = To have none left (negation) -

Bonjour John,

This is a very interesting question.
You could indeed form the following question:
"N'as-tu plus d'argent ?"
But you could also use "As-tu encore de l'argent ?" which would be "Do you still have some money?".

I hope that's helpful!

Does "est-ce que tu n'as plus d'argent?" mean the same as "don't you have any money left?"

Can it be - Tu n’as plus d’argent ?

@ John and Shruti

Yes, both your sentences are valid to ask "Don't you have any money left?"  :)

Bonne journée!
