    Smile Which vs. What

    Hi

    My question is about the use of "What" and "Which"

    for example:

    What is her phone number?
    or
    Which is her phone number?

    What would be correct? and Why?
    Is there any other case when the use of What or Which sounds awkward?

    thanks

    or
    Which is her phone number? You are asking about the number among two or more possibilities.

    What Which would be correct? and Why? See above.

    What "sounds awkward"?

    thanks
