Hello Osama Qamar,
I think you can say the following:
"We've got 10 in white but none in black"
You could change 'none' to a number, of course:
"We've got 10 in white but only two in black"
You could also say:
"We have only 10 in white but we don't have any left in black"

Thanks a lot.

i wear whole black or all white trainers. That is because they are suitable for matching with any type of clothes.
i learned "do you have them in a 10?"

My sport trainers are black and the are a bit too big, but im happy with them because i use them for run, so it is perfect for me.

How can I download this Transcript?

Hello amit_ck

At some point we plan to make worksheets for this page, but I'm afraid it's going to take us some time to do this. In the meantime, you can find a transcript for this same video on LearnEnglish Teens.

All the best
