1.—what do you have in mind for supper?
—Oh,______ is O.K. with me.
A.anything  B. everything
2.---What's up, mate?
--- ________ is Ok.
A.anything  B. everything
I know we should choose A for the first one and B for the second one.
However, I am often confused by how to explain the differences between them clearly. Do you have any advice?

I'm not quite sure myself, but I will give it a try. Everything is definite, for sure. So for the first one, if you said "everything is OK with me" than you mean that everything offered to eat is OK with you. But if you say anything it leaves options fo, in this case, what to eat.
