    alternate

    Is there a difference between "alternate" and "alternative"?
    For example in a sentence like
    "I don't want to wear the green shirt. I choose the alternate/alternative shirt, which is blue."

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
