    Hello

    Some:
    quantifier; used with either mass nouns or plural count nouns to indicate an unspecified number or quantity; "have some milk"; "some roses were still blooming"; "having some friends over"; "some apples"; "some paper"

    Any:
    Is used in negative statements. Either every little or very great but unspecified; "can't stand any noise"; "could not endure chemotherapy for any length of time"
    One, some, every or all without specification; "give me any peaches you don't want"; "not any milk is left"; "any child would know that"; "pick any card"; "cars can be rented at almost any airport"


    Hope that helps,
    Dany

    'Any' is also used in questions, though 'some' can be used when the answer is expected to be positive.
