    What or Which

    When we are made to choose between two things, is What also advisable to use? Or is it strictly Which?

    Example:

    Which do you like, a bag or a pair of shoes?

    What do you like, a bag or a pair of shoes?

    Is the use of Which limited to two things?

    Thank you!

    I am going to give you a birthday present:
    "Which would you like, a bag or a pair of shoes?" These are your only choices.
    "What would you like, a bag, a pair of shoes?" You can choose something else, these are suggestions.
    There are five different models of car at the same price, which would you like?"
