    一般來說, 確實是some用於肯定句any用於否定句, 疑問句 不過, 如果你預期對方會給你肯定答案的話,也是可以在疑問句的時候用any喔因此你的題目一般說來都應該選any, 可是要看說話者是什麼樣的心態Are we going to drink any coffee?如果說話的人很期待去喝咖啡也希望對方能答應的話, Are we going to drink some coffee?也可以啦同樣的Is he going to buy "any" water?如果說話者希望對方確實買些水, Is he going to buy some water? 也可以只是這一題因為是有關於第三者he的問題, 答題的對方未必能代表這個he的想法,所以這題用some就沒有前面那句適合了

    前者提到表示希望對方的回答是正面的問句 應該是用some而不是用any

    Ex: We're running out of milk. Can you go to the store and get "some"?

    因該是用any

    因為在否定句和否定句時必須使用any

    而some則只用在肯定句

    所以在Are we going to drink any coffee?

    使用上是問句
