Here's a list of games. You can buy whichever you want.
Here's a list of games. You can buy any you want.
I, as a non-native speaker, understand it as:
- The first sentence means that only one game can be bought.
- The second sentence means that any amount of fames can be bought.
But the problem starts with the use of any with an amount.
- You can buy whichever 3 you want.
- You can buy any 3 you want.
Are both sentences grammatically correct?
Here are more examples with the word amount:
- Here's the sack of sugar. You can take whichever amount is needed. (Is whatever also possoble?)
- Here's the sack of sugar. You can take any amount is needed. (This sounds really bad to my ear)
