We have a few questions we need answered. May we come in?

Source: Alone ,D.D Warren

A investigator turned up at a suspect house and asked the suspect if he could have a few questions.


What do you think if it is "We have a few questions we need answers" Do you think it alters the meaning? It seems "we need answered" is more about the act of answering

    You version is not grammatically correct. It would have to be "We have a few questions we need answers for."
