Which One Is Correct: SOMETHING or ANYTHING?
Would you answer my question?

Why was "something" correct?
You are right that as a general rule "any" is usually used in questions, rather than "some."
But not always.
In some cases you would want to use "some" instead.
Here is a very good explanation on the subject:
