    Question Using the word "whatever."

    Is the following sentence correct:
    I hope all is well for you wherever and whatever you are doing.

    Okay, thanks. So, if we cannot be doing wherever, can we do whatever? In other words, use the same sentence, but omit the whatever.
    I hope you are well wherever you are.

    I hope you are well wherever you are.
    The choices you have are:-

    I hope you are well wherever you are
    I hope you are well whatever you are doing
    I hope you are well wherever you are and whatever you are doing
