    (which/what)? color do you like?

    I am looking for clarification on when to use which vs. what. Here are some close examples:

    What color do you like?
    Which color do you like?

    Of all these colors, which one do you want?
    Of all these colors, what color do you want?

    Re: (which/what)? color do you like?

    That's exactly the differnce.In the second pair, the first sentence sounds more natural, since "which" is the common word when you're talking about a limited number of things. The first pair are both correct depending on the situation.\.
