Happy New Year To You and Me
I hope that I will ask less English questions from now on.
1) Any child can do it.
2) Any children can do it.
I think #1 is correct and any child implies every child. Is #2 never possible or they mean difference between them?
3) Buy any book you want.
4) Buy any books you want.
I think both are correct and #3 implies that I am allowed to buy only one book.
4) Do you have any sister?
5) Do you have any sisters?
I think that both are okay and #4 implies "Do you have one sister?" and #5 implies "Do you have a few sisters?
So what I would like to know is if usage of any is different in each sentence? Thank you so much as always and have a good and safe day.
