Learn more about Whoever Whatever Whichever & more : Today we will learn wh + ever, if we add ‘ever’ to ‘wh, then what will happen?
We know – ‘Wh word’ is called question word. Because we use ‘Wh word’ to know a lot of information about a person or an object. More over ‘Wh word’ helps us to ask questions. For example –
Who – Used to know about a person
What – used to ask for information about people or things
Which – used to choice something
When – Used to know about time
Where – Used to know about Place
How – used to ask about the condition or quality of something.
These are all ‘wh word’. Now if we add ‘ever’ to them then their meaning is like this.
For example –
Wh + Ever
Who + ever = Whoever it means Anyone
What + ever = whatever it means anything
Which + ever = whichever it means also anything
When + ever = whenever it means anytime
Where + ever = wherever it means Anywhere / Everywhere
How + ever = however it means anyway
