    first question
    That is the difference with who, that, and which?
    I want to know when to use which.

    I have a friend who likes cats
    I have a friend that likes cats
    I have a friend which likes cats

    second question
    Speaking of which, what is the the difference between which and what?
    When to use which one?
    for example,

    What letter in the alphabet do you like?
    Which letter in the alphabet do you like?
    or
    What country do you want to visit
    Which country do you want to visit


    third question

    What letter in the alphabet do you like?

    Which country do you want to visit

    Virtually no difference in this context.

    third question
    What if I use -ing? s the meaning difference?

    I have a cat living in a pink house I am living in a pink house
    I have a cat that lives in a pink house I know a cat that lives in a pink house

    The first expresses an ongoing action; the second is a statement of fact.
