    Default she 's always annoying about something?

    My task is to find one mistake in the following sentence and correct it:
    "She's always annoying about something"
    I think "annoying" should be replaced with "annoyed": She's always annoyed about something.
    But my friend says that it must be "anything", not "something": She's always annoying about anything.
    Please help me to find the correct answer.
    Thanks so much in advance

    IMO, it should be "She's always annoyed about something" (Present Simple) or "She's always being annoyed about something" (Present Continuous) - if it's something that gets on your nerves.

    Please help me to find the correct answer.

    Ex: She's always annoyed about something (in specific).
    Ex: She's always annoyed about anything.
