Transcript of General quantifiers

We use the words some/many to express quantity.

We use "some" in positive sentences. We use some for both countable and uncountable nouns.Example: I have some friends.

We use "any" in negative sentences or questions. We use any for both countable and uncountable nouns.Example: Do you have any cheese? - He doesn't have any friends in Chicago.

Have you got any bananas? No, we haven't got any. But we've got some oranges.
