comment Difference between 学生・生徒・児童
児童 is not limited to pre-elementary. Elementary teacher's versions of textbooks refer to students as 児童. Also 生徒 I feel is closer to being related to the relationship between 教師 vs 生徒 than having anything to do with age, though on this point I'm not 100% confident.

comment Why is “ゼロ” more popular than “れい”?
The answers given seem completely reasonable but I wonder also if prestige has anything to do with it. It seems like there's a fairly high level of prestige associated with using recently borrowed loan words as long as they have been sufficiently disseminated.

comment の cannot be used as a pronoun meaning “one” for “highly abstract objects” but what is a “highly abstract object”?(amended)
I agree, these example sentences do nothing to illustrate the stated grammar. Usually の is contrasted with こと to illustrate the usage difference for this topic.
