    homework question

    I want to say "we don't have to do any kind of deposit"

    Нам не надо делать никакого депозита.

    Нам не надо делать никакой депозит.

    Which is right? Does Никакой cause genetive negation when you aren't talking about the existence or absence of something?

    The first one is right.

    Нет, не надо, не нужно require Genitive.

    Нет времени (not: нет время)
    Нет ничего (not: нет ничто)
    Не надо бумаги (not: не надо бумага)
    Не нужно билетов (множ. ч., родит. падеж) (not: не нужно билеты)
