comment How can I negate time and when to place 在 before time?
My wife says it should be 我不是8点起床,我9点起床。So instead of 在, use 是, as Drunken Master have it in his answer. It's posted at the same time as this comment

comment How can I negate time and when to place 在 before time?
I personally would translate that to 我8点不起床, 我9点起床. Again, my chinese isn't the best so I don't know 100% which way to say this is grammatically correct. However, I find it best to learn a language through conversing/watching tv/listening to radio. Basically that gives you the chance to learn how the locals talk. I asked my wife how to say this, she is much better at Mandarin than I am

comment How can I negate time and when to place 在 before time?
I would just say 我8点没起床, 我是9点起来的. But then again there are many ways to say that one sentence. You can also say 我8点不起床, 我9点起床. I have only completed elementary school in China, so I don't know the in and outs of grammar, but both ways I have listed makes sense to me.

comment How to translate and answer the question?
If you are not required to answer the question in a sentence, you can just say 多 or 不多. But it is much better to answer it in a sentence as this answer suggests, specially when you are learning

@Growler it's not fitting for Stackoverflow because OP is asking for a tool. It will get closed as off-topic

comment How to translate and answer the question?
@Stan it seems my chinese is still ok, if someone answer with that to me, I would get it however it is not the correct way to answer. That being said, it could be because I am so used to translating english/chinese that I can understand most mistakes

In the last sentence of your context. I don't detect an "if" in there

I read your answer as "People who studies a lot of economics" but then again I been in Canada for so long my chinese isn't that good any more. So to a native speaker it might not make any sense
