    Re: questions

    Some is used when you expect a positive answer.
    For example: You are in a cafe and ask: "Do you have some coffee?"

    Any is used when you expect a negative answer.
    For example: You are in a cafe and ask: "Do you have any chinese food here?"

    Best wishes,
    Dany
