She has no chance of winning.
Is the 'chance' in the sentence an uncountable noun?
I would not say that because you can, on the other hand, say:
She stands a good chance of winning.
Or "She has three chances to win". Seems countable to me too!
If the noun 'chance' in the sentence is a countable noun, I would like to say:
She has no chances of winning.
I think the line can be very hard to draw. "she has no chances of winning" sounds very idiomatic.
Separate names with a comma.
