  5. "I do not see any passengers."

"I do not see any passengers."

Translation:Nie widzę żadnych pasażerów.

Why do you use żadny insteady of ani?


'ani' would work if it was 'neither X nor Y'. "Nie widzę ani pasażerów, ani pilota" - I do not see neither the passengers, nor the pilot. And here it is "I don't see any passengers", or more literally "I don't see no passengers", as we have double negative.
