    I have the right to take a bath at any time when/where I want.

    1. I have the right to take a bath anytime I want.

    2. I have the right to take a bath any time when I want.

    3. I have the right to take a bath any time that I want.

    4. I have the right to take a bath at any time I want.

    5. I have the right to take a bath at any time when I want.

    6. I have the right to take a bath at any time that I want.

    7. I have the right to take a bath whenever I want.

    Are they all grammatical?



    I'm pretty much confused about relative adverbs at the moment.


    There are 4 types of relative adverbs, which are 'where' 'when' 'why' and 'how'

    Some of them can be replaced by 'that' in a sentence, and I wonder if we can put 'that' instead of 'why' or 'how'.




    Thank you so much in advance.

    The inclusion of 'when' in sentences 2 and 5 doesn't sound right. If you changed 'when' to 'whenever' and put a comma before it, the sentence would read alright.

    The rest are of ok, with 1 and 7 being the most natural ways to put it.
