Dear All,

Nice to see you all again. :D

I saw a sentence below:
It's a bit odd that what Hagrid want more than anything is a dragon.

I am confused why he doesn't write
It's a bit odd that what Hagrid wants more than anything is a dragon.

And I searched "that what he want" on google, there are many sentences, like:
Then he asked me to turn I wonder that what he want but without any question I turned.

Could anyone tell me why we use want here? :?:

Really thanks

It must be a typographical error. It should be wants.

-----------
The use of the subjunctive is restricted to specific formulaic language (e.g., "If it please the court..." rather than pleases)

or to situations where the speaker is requesting, persuading, etc.

For example, a teacher might say to parents:
"It is imperative that your son attend every class in order to avoid failing" - not attends.

If anything, it should be:
It's a bit odd that what Hagrid wants more than anything (should) be a dragon.
