Should I use "is" in the below:

1-Whatever what you dream of, with the hard work you can achieve it.

2-Whatever is what you dream of, with the hard work you can achieve it.

  • I think both are correct grammatically. In both sentences, the dependent clauses follow similar style, i.e., Whatever followed by subject + verb; 'What you do....'; 'What it is....' – Ram Pillai Apr 26 '20 at 9:42

    "Whatever you dream of" is sufficient. – Kate Bunting Apr 26 '20 at 10:58

    I would go with "Whatever you dream of" or "Whatever it is that you dream of". – Hot Licks Apr 27 '20 at 17:20

I would rework the phrase as a whole. All the following are equally valid:

  1. "Whatever you dream of, with hard work you can achieve it"

  2. "Whatever it is you dream of, with hard work you can achieve it"

  3. "Whatever it is that you dream of, with hard work you can achieve it"

All have the same meaning (one of them may sound better to you for the same reason you prefer longer or shorter sentences in your native language).
