About this page
Apples and bananas are countable – but water and rice are not countable. So you can say one apple, two apples – but with water or rice, you only say rice. There is NO rices. NO NO NO. We use some with both Countable and Uncountable Nouns in positive sentences – for example 'Some people in my school like music'. People are countable, or ‘I have some money’, here money is uncountable. We also use some when offering. We use some in questions when we expect the answer to be 'yes' or when we are offering something. 'Would you like some coffee? We use any in question and negative sentences. If we are not sure about the answer, we could say, Would you like any money?
