    Re: What or which

    Hi david11,

    Very often we can use them interchangeably, however we use which for questions when you have a limited range of possibilities.

    In your first question, the answer could be any movie, since you're using what.
    The second one would be better if you had given options: Which movie have you watched recently? x, y or z?
    Not a teacher.
