There are Some BOOKS on the table.
In this sentence the word BOOKS is a plural countable noun. Before a plural countable noun we can use words such as SOME, MANY, A FEW, FEW, A LOT OF, ANY, SEVERAL. These words are called quantifiers.
But in the sentence that follows: there is A LITTLE MEAT in the refrigerator, the word MEAT is an uncountable noun so we have to use LITTLE, A LITTLE, MUCH, SOME, and ANY before uncountable nouns.
Any is used in negative sentences and questions.
But some is used in positive ones for both countable and uncountable nouns.
