in any way
« on: December 13, 2021, 07:55:58 am »
a. He will get the job done in any way.

Is that sentence meaningful?

Could it mean

He will get the job done in any way possible.

?

I think it could be used if someone has already said how they'd like the job to be done.
It would imply that he will get the job done in any way it is desired.

I want the job to be done in such a way as to attract the neighbors' attention.
He will do the job in any way.

Many thanks.

A better sentence would just be: He will get the job done. Or: He will find some way to get the job done.
Best wishes,
