    Default anyone / someone

    Hello.

    I know this is a silly doubt but considering the following sentence, I believe both options are possible. Am I right?

    - Can someone / anyone read this? I can't understand it.

    Thanks

    They are both possible, but they don't necessarily have the same meaning.
