    Question Which or What?

    Which is right?
    1- At what places can computers be used?
    2- At which places can computers be used?

    I want to focus the places that's why I don't want to use "where". Would it be wrong to do so?
    Regards!

    Re: Which or What?

    The normal way to state your question is: "Where can computers be used?" If you want to ask more specifically then say: "Specifically, where can computers be used?" or "In what specific locations can computers be used?"

    No, it wouldn't be wrong at all, D. Using 'what' leaves it more wide open, while 'which' seems to focus on a smaller number of choices.

    Does this mean that you completely rule out 'in' for #1 and 'at' for #2, Anglika?
