    Re: any...?

    The first sentence is correct. The second is not.

    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****


    (1) I think the difference is:

    I am a very poor person. At home, I don't have any books. (= I have

    no books.) Would you please give me a few?

    (2) Tom: Where is my math book? I know that you took it without

    my permission. Give it back to me right now!!!

    Martha: What book (are you talking about). I don't have any book (that

    belongs to you). And I resent your accusing me of taking it.
