    How would you say it?

    herhangi birisi türkiye'den var mı?

    is it correct?

    Kim Turkiyeden? - Who's from Turkey? - question asked to an individual

    Turkiye'den biri var mi? - Anyone from Turkey?

    can you just explain me why did you put 'biri' instead of 'birisi' in least sentence?

    Also shouldn't it be 'herhangi birisi' which usually mean 'anyone'?

    thanks again :)

    You may use "birisi" as well as "biri". But I prefer "Türkiye'den kimse var mı?" instead of "Türkiye'den birisi var mı?". Because the latest sounds weird to my ear.

    Would be correct to say ?

    Herhangi bir türk var mı?

    Sounds slightly odd (most natives wouldn't use it), but it's correct.
