    whichever/which

    a. Choose whichever brand you prefer.
    b. Choose which brand you prefer.
    --------------
    Are the two sentences acceptable?

    If not, could you tell me the reason?
    If they are both acceptable, what is the difference between them?
    I am not a teacher.

    Re: whichever/which

    They're both acceptable.

    To me, the first connotes I don't care about (or I'm not interfering in) your choice.
    The second is simply about offering a choice.
