Best answer

Answer is (A)

We can use "any" in negative sentences with plural countable nouns 

e.g., Aren't there any books?

We can use "any" in negative sentences with uncountable nouns

e.g., Isn't there any paper?  - here paper is uncountable

In general, any is used in negative sentences and questions. Thus option a is correct.
