    Not a teacher. I don't believe the term "may" is necessary in any of the phrases. Take away whichever and use "any". Any you choose, I will be very happy. Meaning's exactly the same, I believe (please correct me if I'm wrong).

    Other than that, grammar sounds just fine, I think.

    I think they are all ok. True, you could leave out 'may', and not alter the sense. But I would not use 'any', in place of 'whichever'. 'anyone' would work, but I would stick with 'whichever'.
