some vs few
I do not understand a recent grammar point. To explain that the following sentence is wrong: "Kevin Connors has some minutes of free time before his meeting with his Chinese contact", it is written: "We only use 'some' to qualify uncountable nouns. " and then a few lines after, there are examples with plural nouns: "some animals". In the Robert &Collins, there are also some examples: "there are some children outside" Someone could explain me: can we use "some" with countable nouns or not?
