"Mom does everything and dad does nothing."
Translation:אמא עושָה הכל ואבא לא עושֶה כלום.
We can't use כולם instead of הכל to mean "everything"? Can someone please explain?
I don't understand the answer. Are they all the same other than the niqqud? Since they don't teach niqqud other than in these sentences, how do I know how to answer?
You can take a Memrise course for the nikkud... or I like the JBS/Shalom TV course - JBS Hebrew: (I think vowels is lesson 2, but I can't remember). https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLFYVdHvwACGu0b-foW7PDLuMfFAb6dUPV

Why do we use for הכל everything but כלום for nothing? Why not הכל and לא...הכל instead?
