    Give me an example of a sport you like. (e.g. Football.)

    what kind of sports do you prefer?

    Give me some examples of sports you like. (e.g. Tennis, rugby and boxing)

    What kinds of sports do you prefer?

    Which types of sport do you like? (e.g. Running sports, ball sports, marital arts, team sports, etc.)
    I am not 100% sure that sentence 3 is considered "good" English.

    I am not a teacher.
