1-That isn't what anyone would want.
2-That isn't something anyone would want.
Do the above sentences mean:
a-That is what nobody would want.
b-That is not something everybody would want.
But it can be interpreted in two ways, I suppose. Context would come into it, as well as inflections when it was being said aloud. All this could change the way it is interpreted.
