    Re: Which or What?

    Not a teacher

    Consider this:

    "Which" for limited a set of options

    Which is your nationality: French or German?

    "What" for an unlimited set of options

    What is your nationality?

    With a basis on this, I'd say the best choice for your examples is "Which"

    Waiting for other opinions,
