With the ANY and SOME search conditions, if the subquery result set is the empty set, the search condition evaluates to FALSE.
Otherwise, the search condition evaluates to TRUE, FALSE, or UNKNOWN, depending on the value of expression, and the result set returned by the subquery, as follows:

If the expression value is..

and the result set returned by the subquery contains at least one NULL, then..

or the result set returned by the subquery contains no NULLs, then..

NULL

UNKNOWN

UNKNOWN

not NULL

If there exists at least one value in the subquery result set for which the comparison with the expression value is TRUE,
then the search condition evaluates to TRUE. Otherwise, the search condition evaluates to UNKNOWN.

If there exists at least one value in the subquery result set for which the comparison with the expression value is TRUE,
then the search condition evaluates to TRUE. Otherwise, the search condition evaluates to FALSE.

An ANY or SOME search condition with an equality operator, evaluates to TRUE if expression is equal to any of the values in the result of the subquery, and FALSE if the value of the expression is not NULL, does not
equal any of the values in the result of the subquery, and the result set doesn't contain NULLs.

Note

The usage of = ANY or = SOME is equivalent to using the IN keyword.
