「まさか。」 Example: AとBは高校生です。 A:ねえ、日曜日の補習クラス、出席する? B:まさか。 "Hey, are you gonna school on Sunday for the extra curricular class?" "Of course not. "

Both "Of course not" and "Of course" are translated into 「もちろん」. It depends on context: positive question or negative question. When you wanna agree with the negative question, you have to answer with positive sentence.

もちろん好きではありません。 - Of course not. 「それはお好きではないでしょうね」「もちろん(好きではありません)」。- “You don't like it?”―“Of course not.” 「君はヘビが好きですか」「もちろん好きではありません」- Do you like snakes? Of course not. 「野球は嫌いなんですね」「ええ嫌いです」- "Don't you like baseball?" - "Of course, not"
