How do you ask multiple choice questions in Japanese?

For example, something like "do you live in Tokyo or Osaka?". Thanks in advance!

    in the formal form: あなたは東京に住んでいますか。それとも大阪ですか (or それとも大阪に住んでいますか)。
    in the informal form: あなたは東京に住んでいるの?それとも大阪(に住んでいるの)?

    *"or" has several translations depends on the context, for example:
    Which do you like, coffee or tea? --> あなたはコーヒーかお茶のどちらが好きですか。
    Today, I'm going to study Japanese, English or history. --> 私はきょう、日本語か英語か歴史を勉強するつもりです。

    I hope this helps you.
