Hello,

How can you falsify this sentence? Why can't we use too here:

I am not too enthusiastic to play.

It is from a worksheet:

Do you want to play tennis today?

No, I am not______ (enthusiastic) to play tennis today. (Too or Enough)

    "I'm not too enthusiastic.." suggest that you have little enthusiasm but (that) you might, or probably will, play.
    I'm not enthusiastic enough.. means I have so little enthusiasm that I will not play.

    Neither option is idiomatic.

    What someone might actually say is: I’m not keen on [the idea of] playing tennis today.
