comment 硬い・堅い・固い - how are different spellings used?
Ultimately I think it just comes down to that sort of native intuition, similar to how Japanese people often have very poor usage of the/a. Just need to develop that cultural and linguistic intuition for what sorts of items fit into which categories. Nevertheless I'd certainly be happy if a native posted a more nuanced discussion of different examples.

comment Is answering with simple ない grammatically correct, when saying I physically don't possess some object
Physical and also FIGURATIVE existence, perhaps? As in 「アメリカに行ったこと(ある/ない)?」「ない」 Examples kept brief/'cold' for the sake of illustrating the grammar point.
