    usage of any

    Are both the following sentences correct?

    1- Hi everyone, ask me any question. I will answer it to the best of my ability.

    2- Hi everyone, ask me any questions. I will answer them to the best of my ability.

    I think the second one using plural noun is correct. I am not sure.

    They're both grammatically correct and natural. Using "Ask me a question. I'll answer it to the best of my ability" works too.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
