Some, any, much, many, are all words that come before nouns to explain the sentence. Some and any are both “determiners” – they tell us whether the noun phrase is general or specific. Which means they refer to an indefinite or unknown quantity of something.
1. We don’t have any time to get chips before the film starts.
2. We don’t have any pasta left for dinner.
1. We still have some mangoes on the tree.
2. It’s such nice weather! Let’s invite some friends for dinner.
Much, many are all “quantifiers”. Quantifiers are used to give information about quantity (the number of something). Both much and many suggest a large quantity of something.

2. I don’t think many people agree with her views on live-in relationship.
