I wonder if Bill would lend me some money?
I learned a great lesson about the difference between some and any that is some is "limited", while any is "unlimited", but is the following explanation correct from my grammar book? Or do I have to interpret them also from the "limited" or "unlimited" perspective?
ex1)I wonder if Bill would lend me some money.- for positive expectation
ex2)I wonder if Bill would lend me any money.- for negative or impossible expectation

- Bill, can you lend me some money?

- No, I really can't. I'm completely broke. Sorry.
- OK, thanks anyway, maybe Fred can lend me some.
