Student or Learner
I do not really understand the difference between "some" and "any" when making questions.
Regarding the typical grammar explanation, "some" is used to offer or request something, whereas "any" to make other sorts of questions. If so, why on the Internet are there questions like the following which does not request or offer anything? For instance:
Why are some people left-handed?
Shouldn't it be "why are any people left-handed"?
Many thanks for your time and comments.

The one question asks what makes people left-handed. The other question asks why left-handed people exist. (They really shouldn't, you know.)
