For English people or Ishimaru (xD), I need your help.

Do you say "What apple do you want ?" OR "Which apple do you want ?"

Because my English teacher says What, but Blood, Emy, friends and I are saying "which", it sounds better, no ?

and could you tell me why it's which or what, because she doesn't want to tell me that I am right >.>

Thanks a lottttt !!

(Your favorite moderator :mrgreen:)

And if Ishimaru is ok, I add 5 points for the member who tells me the good answer and why xD)

It depends of the situation. Wink

Like: the guy show you 2 apples, he'll ask you: Which one do you want ?
If you go shopping with your mom, she'll ask you: What apple do you want ?

Well, That's the teacher way, I guess... XD But ''which'' when there's a thousand of apple wouldn't be really normal. oO

I would say "What", if the apples to choose from wasn't specified, however if there was a selection, it would be "which".

yes he is wrong!

actually now that i think about it, "what" should never be used:
> which apple would you like?
> which apple, red or green?

"what" doesn't seem to fit this tense now I think about it...

It should be used when nothing is specified:
> What would you like for dinner?
