Synonyms of "Someone" and their differences

You will use anybody in a negative or interrogative sentence.

Q: What is the difference between someone and somebody ?
A: More or less. The only distinction I can think of is that "someone" can carry the connotation that you have a specific person in mind (like the phrase "a certain someone/somebody"), whereas "anyone" is more general and is better to use if you don't have a specific person in mind.
Q: What is the difference between Put someone up and Drop in ?
A: I have to admit, I'm not sure about "put you up," I'd need more context on the conversation.
"Drop in" means to go see the person anytime with out an appointment or letting them know that you're coming by. The phrase "Drop in appointment" is commonly used by businesses like hair salons where you can get a service done without making an appointment first.
Q: What is the difference between "if someone said -." and "if someone was to say-." ?
A: The second phrase is more hypothetical, and we usually use it when talking about more unlikely situations. "If someone were to say 'I've always loved you' to your face, how would you feel?" The first is more conditional, e.g. "If someone said 'Hi' to me on the street, I would say 'Hi' back." You could use "If someone said" for hypothetical situations too, though, in casual English.
Q: What is the difference between have someone do something and get someone to do something ?
A: It's pretty much the same meaning. I guess the difference is "get them to do it" is active like u go out and persuade them. "Have someone do it" is passive

"Are there any doctors here?" "Are they all doctors?"

any doctor = asking if a specific one or all will be suitable.
"ANY doctor will do?"

each - you should never put a plural noun after this.
"Each doctor does this" "Each person is this way"

every - also never a plural (that I can think of)

Any - you can use singular or plural

Q: ‎Can someone explain me how does the US election system works please?
A: @tizianaorlando

To elect a new president, everyone that is allowed to supply a vote either mails in a vote or goes to vote in person. Those votes are all tallied and that is the "popular vote." The "popular vote" doesn't decide who wins the election.

There are 50 states in the USA. Each state has to tally their own votes. A state will post the results of the presidential election for that state. Each state is supplied a number of "electoral votes" based upon that states population. If the state results show that the state favors candidate A, then all of the "electoral votes" are given to candidate A. There are some exceptions to that, but it isn't worth going into them right now. This is called the "electoral college" or the "electoral vote." It is the electoral vote that decides who wins the election; in order to win a candidate must have 270 or more electoral votes.

It is very possible for a candidate to lose the popular vote yet win the electoral vote and become the next president. This has happened several times already since 2000.
