I'm a little confused about "any".
Can we use "any" in the questions and in the declaritive sentences only with plural and uncountable with meaning "it doesn't matter which" or with any noun?
Thank in advance.

Hi,
Post a few examples and we'll review them for you.

Hi, Clive. Some of them are here:

"Have you got any sugar here?"
"Has he got any free dishes to be filled?"
"You can call on any person you like"
"You can call on any persons you like"

If they're fine, I wonder if you write example of wrong using "any".
So. It freaks me out. One book tells me that: "any in meaning "not important which" can be used with plural and uncountable " (Murphy)
another one says:"with singular and uncountable"
the third claims: "with all nouns (in meaning = not important which)".
What am I supposed to do?

"You can call on any persons you like"

If they're fine, Yes, they are

I wonder if you write example of wrong using "any". I don't really want to spend time trying to create sentences that are wrong. I think it's better if you try, if you wish, to write more sentences that I can check for you.

Best wishes, Clive
You're right, Clive.Could you kindly explain me something?

So, I guess there is no firm rule to regulate that, isn't there?
