Beeesneees,
1. I am not so foolish that he could swindle my money (so easily).
2. I am not such a fool that he could swindle my money (so easily).
3. I am not a fool that he could swindle my money (so easily).
4. I am not foolish that he could swindle my money (so easily).
Are these OK grammatically?
