    Re: what or which

    They are both correct.

    Others may have a preference - I'd use either.

    Tom: Welcome to the United States.

    Mona: Thank you. I'm from Germany.

    Tom: How nice! What city are you from?

    Mona: I'm from Bonn.

    Tom: That's the capital, isn't it?

    Mona: No longer. Now it's Berlin.

    Susan: Welcome to the United States. I understand that all 12 of you are

    visiting from Germany. I have been told that you come from different cities,

    including Berlin, Bonn, Munich, and Hamburg.

    Hans: That's right.

    Susan: Which city [of the four that I mentioned] are you from?

    Hans: I'm from Hamburg.

    Susan: Really? That's how we Americans got the name for our famous

    hamburger sandwiches.

    (All 12 visitors laugh very loudly.)
