usage of What
In below two sentences, I heard that "what" clause is used as "relative clause" in one and as "indirect question" in the other.
I gave her what she needed.
I asked her what she needed.
However, the structure of "what clause" is the same in the two.
If his explanation is right, how do you tell one is relative clause and the other is indirect question?
Thanks a lot.
