there are zero doors
there is zero chance of that happening

zero being a modifier

zero is my favorite number
you all are a bunch of zeroes

zero being a noun

and... close to zero chance of me being online right now, but hey! i'm here.

Because the possibility of having multiple doors is denied.

Yay! Cyan was here!

I like the answer here:
there wrote:Substitute the word "any" in the place of zero and it makes sense. Instead of saying "I have zero books." you are saying "I do not have any books."

In this construction, the plural is not referring to the zero-quantity of books you have, but instead refers to a (vague and undefined) collection of books, none of which you have.


The "substitute any" thing also works for

Cool, but I feel like that's just explaining one language quirk with another (closely related) one.
