    somehow or anyhow

    There's not much time left, but _____ we must get there in time.

    A. somehow B. anyhow

    The given answer is B. But does A work as well, with just a slightly different meaning?

    Thank you in advance.

    Re: somehow or anyhow

    Choice A seems like the best answer here:

    Ex: There's not much time left, but _____ we must get there in time.

    A. somehow
    B. anyhow => Means, let's not worry about there not being much time left.

    Mind you, choice B works just as well, at least colloquially.
