But, as usual in English, we flip the order and drop the "on the" between.

Q: Please show me example sentences with “It’s no use.”, “It’s useless.”, “There is no point.”, “It’s pointless.” -> sample context for each one, please .
A: They all can be used in similar scenarios!

: It’s no use crying (or “there is no use in crying), because crying solves nothing.

: It’s useless to collect expensive plates if you’re never going to use them.

: You can use “there is no point (in)” for those ^ sentences above too. But, a different example could be: There is no point in buying expensive things when you can thrift them.

: It’s pointless to use a pencil and paper to take tests when using computers is obviously better.

* “there is no point” and “it’s pointless” can sometimes sound like you strongly disapprove/disagree with something. It has an emotional feeling to it, I would say. Those are not phrases to be used if you’re planning to respectfully disagree with someone.

* “it’s no use” and “it’s useless” also have an emotional feel. However, sometimes they are used to express hopelessness/sadness when you think there is no hope for something/someone.

I hope this made sense! 😅

Translations of "Sample"

Q: How do you say this in English (US)? if you have a sample of ballot for president election 2020, would you please let me have a look?
A: They actually look slightly different depending on the state you’re in, since the ballot also includes some local elections like the Senate and the House of Representatives.

Also, people tend to not take photos of their ballots, since your decisions on them are meant to be left private. It’s even illegal to take a picture of your ballot in some states.

Anyways, I found this from an article about voting in Mississippi. It’s the best picture of a full ballot that I could find.

Q: This is a sample translation sentence from a book. The sentence in the brackets is supposed to be the correct version. However, can I say "one not only needs to..., but also needs to..."? I just thought the repetition of "one" in the sample sentence is a bit redundant.
A: You're right. The second "one" does sound redundant.
I think the most natural way to say the sentence is to remove "one" and "needs" and "to."

For example:
"One not only needs to eat food, but also drink water, in order to survive."
