some, any

some = a little, a few or a small number or amount

any = one, some or all

Usually, we use some in positive (+) sentences and any in negative (-) and question (?) sentences.

some any example situation
+ I have some money.   I have $10.
-   I don't have any money. I don't have $1 and I don't have $10 and I don't have $1,000,000. I have $0.
?   Do you have any money? Do you have $1 or $10 or $1,000,000?
In general, we use something/anything and somebody/anybody in the same way as some/any.

Look at these examples:

We use any in a positive sentence when the real sense is negative.

Sometimes we use some in a question, when we expect a positive YES answer. (We could say that it is not a real question, because we think we know the answer already.)
