Do both the following sentences mean the same? If not, what's the difference?

1- Which colleges in India are run by the right wing students group?

2- What colleges in India are run by the right wing students group?

Is there only one "right-wing students' group"?

You need to capitalise "India" every time you write it. The same is true for all proper nouns.

There is only one 'right-wing students' group'. Are both the sentences correct?

Can someone please confirm if both the sentences are correct?

I think they are correct but used in different contexts.

I'd only use #1 (but add an apostrophe as ems did).

Thank you Rover. Is the second one using 'what' incorrect? I read that 'which' is used to choose a item/items from a number of items and 'what' is used when items are not mentioned. Can you please tell me why the second one is wrong?

Sorry, I didn't get the reply I needed to understand the difference between the two sentences so I posted it on that site.

But the thread is still active and you got two replies (Matthew's and Rover's) that directly address your question. In fact, you responded to Rover's reply with a question of your own today.
