    Re: Which shirt would you like..?

    The main problem with #1-3 is that no shop assistant would utter them. All shops sell different coloured shirts; There is no need to state the obvious.

    They may have a limited range of shirts in a particular style or size, in which case this is possible: We have red, blue and green in this style/size. What colour do you prefer?

    I want to understand the difference between which and which one.

    Here are two examples:

    A- Which one is your favourite, apples or mangoes.

    B- Which is your favourite, apples or mangoes.

    You have made a very basic punctuation error in both A and B. Please use the Edit Post facility to fix the errors and then we can deal with your query.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
