    Which ?

    Hello, teachers:
    Could you tell me which is right and natural?

    1. Which do you like, a doll or a car?

    2. Which do you like , dolls or cars?

    Thanks for your confirmation.

    You could manufacture context that makes #1 sound natural, but I am assuming here that the speaker is merely inquiring about the listener's general preferences as they relate to...toys, presumably.

    In that case, I would use the plural (#2) since the speaker is talking about countable objects in the general sense.

    Hope this helps.
