Colonoscopy shows no sign of Crohn's disease but can it be ulcerative colitis ?

In brief: Unlikely

if no signs of crohn's disease was seen on colonoscopy, then it means there was no inflammation seen.
Ulcerative colitis would have been seen on colonoscopy, unless it is "quiescent" or controlled with medications.

In brief: Not likely

If the colonoscopy and biopsies all looked normal, you likely do not have ulcerative colitis.
