Some is used in positive sentences.
e.g.: I have some answers for you. These are some of the things I want to share with you.
Any is used in questions and negatives.
e.g.: I don't have any questions. Do you have any questions?
Some can also be used in a question as well as making an offer or request.
e.g.: Can I have some salt, please. Do you want some of the chips?
Any is used in positive sentences if we mean it doesn't matter which.
e.g.: Any of the dresses will do. Any of your shoes will match that dress.
Any is often used after if.
e.g.: If there are any letters for me, can you send them on to this address?
