    Both 'what' and 'which' are interrogative as well as relative pronouns.
    As an interrogative pronoun, 'what' in a question suggests unlimited possibilities. Here are a few examples:

    - What are you going to do this weekend?

    - What is your favourite picnic spot?

    'Which' in a question suggests a definite, limited list of alternatives. Look at these examples:

    - Which game do you like the most?
    Both the speaker and the listener have a few games in mind.
