    We usually use which when we are asking about a fixed or limited number of things or people, and what when we are not . Which" is more formal when asking a question that requires a choice between a number of items. You can use "What" if you want, though.

    We use "which" as a determiner to ask a question about a specific group of people or things.
    But when we are asking a general question we use "what" as a determiner.
