Can “attributive clause” and “noun clause” be exchanged, excluding appositive clause?

For example:

  1. Remind the clients what maintenance advice they should follow.(object clause)

  2. Remind the clients the maintenance advice that they should follow.

  3. I wonder where she comes from. (object clause)

  4. I wonder the place that she comes from.

  5. Whoever says that is a liar.(subject clause)

  6. Anyone who says that is a liar.

  7. That is what he meant.(predicative clause)

  8. That is the meaning that he meant.

Thank you very much!

Remind the clients what maintenance advice they should follow.(object clause)

Remind the clients of the maintenance advice that they should follow.

I wonder where she comes from. (object clause)

I wonder about the place that she comes from. (this one could be wrong, I think it might have to remain the object clause)

Whoever says that is a liar.(subject clause)

Anyone who says that is a liar. - this one is fine

That is what he meant.(predicative clause)

That is the meaning that he meant. - this one is also correct
