Any idear or any idea...? #1 (permalink) Sat May 15, 2010 6:55 am   Any idear or any idea...?
 

...
I have come across a test as below:

http://www.english-test.net/esl/learn/english/grammar/ii836/esl-test.php

Question No. 10
correct sentence:
Do you have any ideas regarding the new business plan?

Correct answer: (b) any

My question is: can we use ' any ' wihch is singular with ideas ...which is plural....

In my opinion it should be ' any idea '..... am I correct...?

'Any ideas' is fine because the questioner wants to know if 'you' have more than one idea about the business plan.
