crack any code

1) I don't believe he's able to crack any code.
2) I don't believe he can crack any code.


Can '1' and '2' have two meanings:
a) I don't believe he's able to crack just any code.
b) I don't believe he's able to crack a single code.

-----------------
-----------------

3) He is unable to crack any code.
4) He can't crack any code.


Can '3'' and '4' have two meanings:
c) He can't crack just any code. He can only crack some codes.
d) He can crack no code.


Gratefully,
Navi

Well said. I read them twice and decided to go for a lie down trying not to wonder at the opportunities for a side chick.
