    I almost understnd the meaning of "any" and "some", however I do not understand the differences between "for any reason" and "for some reason". Please kindly let me know.

    'For any reason' is less specific- it could be any reason whatsoever. 'For some reason' is more specific- it implies that there might be a single reason.
