Hi Coca,

I think the two expressions complement each other -

Pas question de lui emprunter de l’argent = Borrowing money from him is out of question 

Parce quebecause

Il a des oursins dans le porte-monnaie He is tight/ mean /stingy

I love all the expressions in this reading exercise , I had forgotten we had so many....
