    Talking What/which

    Me again!

    What's the right expression:

    Which part of the world do you like most?

    What part of the world do you like most?

    Thanks a lot. W

    You will hear both of these all the time, so both of them are "right". However, the first one (Which part of the world do you like most?) is most correct.

    In English, we usually use which when asking people to choose from a limited number of something, and (in theory) the world - or at least the part of it that you have visited - is limited.

    For another example, you can ask:
    - What is your favorite color (of an unlimited number of colors)?
    - Which is your favorite, the blue one or the purple one?
