1. You can read whatever magazine you like.

2. You can read which magazine you like.

3. You can read that magazine you like.
(Which one is right? Are they all grammatical? What is the difference in meaning?)

    Only #1 is correct. Well, #3 can be considered correct, too, but it has a much narrower meaning.

    In 2, the use of the words "which" is incorrect.

    Thank you for your help.

    1. You can read whatever magazine you like.

    2. You can read any magazine that you like.

    3. You may read any magazine that you like.

    (Does #1 mean #2? And what about #3? 'Can' sometimes means 'May.' What about in this sentence?

  • English -

    All three mean about the same thing. Technically, "can" and "may" mean different things, but in casual speech, they're about the same!
