Hello.
I am confused a little bit by this phrase.
I seems to me this is a questoin tag form. Isn't it?
And this sentence should be:
" I like anything to do with sport. Don't you?"( if the first part is positive the second should be negative).
Or I am wrong and another grammar construction is used there.
Thank you for explanation in advance.

It's not a question tag question.

Hi Maria,

You'll notice that the test is headed 'responses' and that particular question is asking for a reaction/response to the comment: I like anything to do with sport. It's an example of the sort of things people say in conversation.

.
In addition, sometimes "Do you?" is also used this way as a response:

Mike: 'I like anything to do with sport.'
Jane: 'Do you?'

"something" tells about some specific action...but "anything" doesn't describe any specific action

Hi,

'Anything to do with' suggests everything connected to/related to/concerned with. The sentence: I like anything to do with sport means I like everything that has any connection with sport.

Hi Alan,
It seems silly, but doesn't "I like anything to do with sport" have a negative meaning because of anything?

Thank you in advance.

Hi Salivan,

I can see your point but remember that 'any' apart from being used for interrogative and negative sentences can also suggest when linked with -one -where -body -how -thing and so on that it really doesn't matter who/where and so on.

In a sentence like this: Anyone who is interested in joining the club can telephone this number ***, the idea is that whoever you are isn't important but you can join.

Alan
