However, at the same time, I can accept &...

I want to ask if you can do the same for quantifiers - 很少人,很多人,每个人,没有人 for example. I'd say yes. A topic doesn't need to be a proper noun, it can be a statement of any kind. "很少人",就是我的答案 (我的答案是"很少人") "每个人",就是這法案針對的目標 (這法案針對的目標是"每个人") "没有一个",就是能戦勝電腦的棋手人數 (能戦勝電腦的棋手人數是"没有一个") "Few people" is ...
