what vs which

Do you say what day is it? or which day is it?

Whichย is preferred when you have a limited number of choices.

  • Which car would you like to buy? The blue one or the red one? (choosing from 2 things)
  • Which necklace did you buy for your girlfriend? The one with the diamonds? (there were only a few necklaces the man was considering to buy)

Whatย is used when youโ€™re not thinking of a limited number of choices.

  • What sports do you like? (there are hundreds of sports to choose from)
  • What colour is your new car? (there are hundreds of colours to choose from)

So, if you ask โ€˜Which day is it?โ€™, you should have some specific choices in mind. Is it the day weโ€™ll go to your sisterโ€™s wedding, or is it the day weโ€™ll go to your brotherโ€™s wedding? Of course, itโ€™s not very likely that you should ever ask these questions.

Is it the day weโ€™ll go to your sisterโ€™s wedding, or is it the day weโ€™ll go to your brotherโ€™s wedding? Of course, itโ€™s not very likely that you should ever ask these questions.
Most probably you would ask ‘

Most probably you would ask ‘What day is it today?’.

Which Is Why or That Is Why?

Which vs That! ๐Ÿ˜ Is there a difference between Which and That?
