    A few questions on how to say things in Russian?

    Hi I've been learning Russian for a while now, and I had a few questions.

    If I wanted to say "I don't have a car, do you?"
    How would I say that? Would it be:
    "у меня нет авто, ты?"

    Also what's the difference between
    "сейчас" and "теперь"

    This is my first time posting on these forums so I'm sorry if Ive done something wrong.

    Thanks in advance ^-^

    1. У меня нет авто, а у тебя? (...у тебя есть авто?)

    or

    2. Я не владею авто, а ты? (... ты владеешь авто?)

    Notice that words "машина" and "автомобиль" are more common. "Авто" is still little bit slang and mostly used as part of some
    expressions like "автосалон".


    Also what's the difference between
    "сейчас" and "теперь"
    Сейчаc = now, at this moment or this particular times (2010s years)

    -Я сейчас не могу говорить, перезвоните мне по этому номеру вечером.
    -Сейчас в мире много возможностей для талантливых специалистов.


    Теперь = nowadays, current situation comparing to the past

    -Теперь можем и поговорить, я свободен.
    -Теперь возможностей больше, чем полвека назад.
    fortheether and Soft sign like this.
