    ό, τι means the same as οτιδήποτε (= anything, whatever thing )
    For example: Πάρε ό,τι θέλεις. (=Take whatever you want.)
    Θέλω ό,τι θες εσύ. (I want what/whatever you want.)

    However, οτιδήποτε(which is the same) can be used alone as an answer, while ό, τι can not.
    For example: Τι θέλει; (=What does he want?)
    Οτιδήποτε. (= Anything, whatever thing)



    But watch out, because ό,τι with comma is different from ότι (without a comma)
    Ότι without comma means ''that'' .
    For example: Πιστεύω ότι θα έρθει. (I believe that he will come.)

    They are pronounced exactly the same ;)
