Correct option is D)

The question mark at the end shows that the sentence is a question that can be answered in yes or no. In English, a yes or no question has the following structure:
Auxiliary + subject + main verb ( + extra information/details/adverbs, etc…)?
So the sentence should start with auxiliary verb. This rules out Options A and B as possible answers. In order to determine whether the answer is Option C or Option D, we must understand the difference between ‘any’ and ‘some.’ Both ‘any’ and ‘some’ can be used when the quantity is not stated. However, ‘any’ is used in questions and negative sentences and ‘some’ is used in offers, requests and positive and affirmative sentences. Hence, Option D would be used here as the sentence is a question.
