    change vs. exchange

    Dear Friends,

    I wonder if 'change' or 'exchange' is more commonly used in the following:

    I was furious because the shopkeeper refused to change/exchange my T-shirt.

    Thank you very much.

    If the shopkeeper was wearing your shirt and you wanted him or her to wear a different one, change.

    If you wanted to give back one shirt and get a different one, exchange.

    If you want your t-shirt in another size or color. (use Change)

    If you want your t-shirt into another style or want to replace in another t-shirt. ( use exchange).
