As a general rule, we use SOME in affirmative sentences and ANY in interrogative and negative sentences, but here is two cases when we can use ANY in affirmative sentences.

ANY in affirmatives You can use ANY in an affirmative sentence (singular or plural) meaning "no matter which".
[ = cualquier]
- You can take any book you like, I've got many.  (you can take one book, no matter which one)
- You can take any books you like.  (you can take more than one book, no matter which ones)
- That exercise is very easy, any children here could answer that. (this boy, or that girl, it doesn't matter who you choose, they all know the answer)
- You don't need to go there at the weekend, you can go any day you want, it's always open.

  ANY in conditionals We usually use ANY after "if" even in affirmative sentences (but SOME may also be possible)
- If you see anything strange, tell me
- If you like any of these books, you can borrow it
