Test No. incompl/inter-38 "Save the Day", answer 1

I don't care what you say, I reckon I could beat you at chess any day of the week.

Correct answer: (b) any

Hi all!!! I guess answeres b, c, d are appropriated in this test. Why 'any'? Do you know it?
Thanks

Hi Batman,

Let's take a look at the sentence you are referring to:

I don't care what you say, I reckon I could beat you at chess ..... day of the week.

(a) some
(b) any
(c) each
(d) every

The author is convinced that he can beat the other person any day of the week, that means, it doesn't matter which particular day of the week the match takes place - I will be the winner.

Take a look at this example:

- What day of the week would you like to meet?
- Oh, any day will be fine, I'm free all week.

So, in this case we don't use plural noun after "any" but why?

Hi
I think any always has negative meaning.Is it a special expression?
