Hello y'all hope you fine, I'm new here hehe

I've been reading a book lately " Alice's adventures in the wonderland" and i've came across to this sentence, " so either way I'll get into the garden, and I don't care which happen", i didn't get what does Alice mean with " i don't care which happen". I'll be glad if someone explain to me, have a good day y'all.

The name of the book is "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" (without "the"). It seems to me you are reading a poor version of the book because it contains a serious grammatical mistake: "happen" should be "happens." (I will not mention other mistakes you made in your question.)

Here, for example, you can read:

Final note: "QUESTION" is not a good title for a forum where everyone asks questions. Please read our Guidelines in the toolbar at the top. Thank you.

Hello, G.Nassima, and welcome to the Grammar Exchange.

Gustavo has already covered everything; however, in case it's still unclear to you what "I don't care which happens!" means, even after seeing the sentence correctly printed in its proper context, the meaning is "I don't care whether the cake makes me grow larger or  whether it makes me grow smaller."

Thank you, David, for clarifying that. I provided the context but your explanation about Alice's satisfaction with either of the two outcomes was really necessary, as well as nice.
