AB "anyone" is singular - these are out

C. missing the verb "work"

D. awkard

E. Best answer - I've rarely heard "any people" but still go for this as the best answer.

nearly got tricked by this one!
though i thought of the singular-plural think and picked E...i was reluctant to because i've never heard the word 'any' and 'people' used next to each other in all my life
