This pattern is generally used with noun and any form of verb.
＊This grammar is meant to express strong negative judgement.
Ｖ(plain form) + わけがない
いＡ + わけがない
なＡ + わけがない
Ｎ + の・である + わけがない
ex #5817 ex #5819 The english translation is a bit misleading. Rather than use "there is no reason", it would be better to use "there is no way"."there is no reason" needs a negative afterwards to make sense.
ex#5912 うちの会社は人手がたりないから, without た, is correct.
