I wonder if I can use both 'everyone' and 'someone' in this context.
==================================
Filling the blanks:
a) I am looking for_____ who can help me to solve this math problem.
A. anyone
B. someone

b) If _____ calls, take their names and phone numbers.
A. anyone
B. someone

==================================

Any help would be appreciated.:)

You can use either one but I think that "someone" would be more commonly used.

b) If _____ calls, take their names and phone numbers.
A. anyone B. someone
Again, you can use either one but I think "anyone" is definitely more natural/common.

It's possible there are regional variations.
Any help would be appreciated.:)

Thanks!
But if in a multichoice-test, which answer would be right? I mean which one is better?
