The thermal expansion and low temperature and low temperature specific heat were measured for Y1-xScxMn2 . The results are discussed in terms of spin fluctuations and compared with those of Y(Mn1-xAlx)2, which show al local moment character. It is revealed that Y1-xScxMn2 is a typical nearly antiferromagnet in which giant spin fluctuations are thermally excited.
