which or what
When do we use which and what?
|which||You have a limited choice of things.||Which lemonade do you like – green or pink?|
|what||You have an unlimited choice of things.||What lemonade do you like?|
With nouns that refer to people, sometimes which is used – even if there is an unlimited choice.
It is often possible to use what or which, like in the following example.
- What is the largest country in the world?
- Which is the largest country in the world?
BUT – if you choose sth from a group of things, use which.
- Here are three apples. Which would you like?
