Who / Which is taller, Brendon or Benny?
Thanks in advance.
Thanks. For a moment, I was confused by story about animals. In such stories, the animals talk, so 'who' is used to refer to them.
You can use "which" where the reference is indirect, e.g.
1. "I measured the twins yesterday." "And which (one) was taller?"
2. "I measured the twins yesterday. Which would you say is taller?"
3. "I know that one of your sons is at Eton; but I can't remember which."
It seems you disagree with Pedantic's reply, but his explanation seems logical.
