    Question Is 'which' necessary?

    Which is better or preferred?
    Unsolicited advice- don't comment on things which you have little understanding of, or, unsolicited advice- don't comment on things you have little understanding of.

    The word 'which' is optional in this context.

    Do you realize that "unsolicited advice" means "advice you didn't ask for"?
    You can be a complete, world-renowned expert on a topic, and if the person didn't ask for your opinion, your advice is still unsolicited.
    Unsolicited advice: Don't comment on things when your opinion has not been asked for.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
