    any of them do

    Can one say
    a. Any of these knobs control the temperature.
    b. Any knob you see here controls the temperature.

    ?

    My feeling is that it should be 'every one' or 'all of' and that 'any' does not work there.

    Many thanks.

    Re: any of them do

    I agree with you.
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....
