When I want to say someone is not afraid of taking the risk and challenge something, can I just use "take chances" without "any"? If I use it just "take a chance", does the meaning become different?
Yes, you can! You don't need to have the word "any" when you use the phrase "take chances." It doesn't really change the meaning of taking risks. You typically would only use "any" when it comes to not taking chances. Ex: You need to take chances and risks. Ex: I need to start taking chances when it comes to dating. Ex: We can all start taking chances.
