    "if any" or "if ever"?

    A: Why doesn't Angel have many friends?
    B: He seldom, ________, invites his friends to his house.

    (a) if any
    (b) if ever
    (c) if so
    (d) whatever

    Is the answer (b)?

    If so, how can I interpret "if ever"?
    If not, what is the answer and what does it mean?

    Thank you so much!

    "If ever" is the correct answer, it means that he never or almost never invites his friends.

    If this is Angel Matos, I can understand why they'd be reluctant to come!
