The future is something which everyone reaches at the rate of sixty minutes an hour, whatever he does, whoever he is.

What is whatever modifying here?

Hey Sanjay,

"whatever" is not a modifier; it's a noun. It's role in the sentence is "object" of the verb "to do"

"He does whatever he wants" is correct. In the sentence on the left, "whatever" plays the same part as it does in the sentence you posted; there is nothing wrong with it even though it may seem incorrect.
