    We also blame those people for whatever/ anything that needs to be changed.

    1. We also blame those people for whatever needs to be changed.

    2. We also blame those people for anything that needs to be changed.


    Are the both sentences same in meaning and grammatical?

    They are both grammatical but I have no idea what they are supposed to mean.

    This is from an exam for Korean high school students and the original text is

    "We often look to a few leaders to improve our communities and unfortunately,

    we also blame those same people for anything that needs to be changed.

    It's easy to blame the principal or teachers if there are problems at your school".
