    I see. So adding "does" in this sentence would be useless, as there is already "which" at the beginning?

    Would it, then, be also possible to use "does" in the first example: Which one of the two does suit you best? Would it be a mistake then?

    Re: suit

    Hi

    I see, so each one of them is correct: Which one of the two suits you best? AND Which one of the two does suit you best?

    Thanks
