We use "which" as a determiner to ask a question about a specific group of people or things:

Which restaurant did you go to?
Which countries in South America have you visited?

When we are asking a general question we use "what" as a determiner:

What films do you like?
What university did you go to?

Sir
Is the use of one word as adjective and verb in the same sentence correct ?
Example: Do you want to naked me?
2....I met Him

Hi Akong,

Off the top of my head, I can't think of any adjectives that can be used as a verb without some kind of change in form. Usually some kind of suffix or prefix is added, e.g. the adjective 'white' + '-en' = 'to whiten'.

'naked' can't be used as a verb in standard English so that sentence is not grammatical. In 2, 'met' is only a verb (the verb 'meet' in the past simple) and is not an adjective. I don't see how you could use it as an adjective, but if you have something specific in mind, please let us know.

By the way, could you please ask your questions on a relevant page? For example, since this one is about verbs and adjectives, it would make more sense somewhere in one of those sections instead of here. Thanks in advance for your cooperation with this.

All the best,

Sir.
Somebody wrote and said

There are about 50 different determiners in the English language they include:

Articles - a, an, the.

Demonstratives - this, that, these, those, which etc.

Possessives - my, your, our, their, his, hers, whose, my friend's, our friends', etc.

Quantifiers -few, a few, many, much, each, every, some, any etc.
More items...which of them fits or means "Integrative" Is it DEMONSTRATIVE? following his arrangement since he wrote (which ) as one of his examples ?
Thanks

Hello Akong,

We're happy to comment on our own material and explanations but we can't explain to you what someone else was thinking when they wrote something. There are interrogative determiners (I think this is what you mean, rather than 'integrative') which are used before nouns to ask questions (e.g. Which book do you want?).

 

You can find a useful categorisation of determiners on the relevant wikipedia page:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Determiner

 

I think if you want an explanation of this person's categorisation then you should contact them. It would not be appropriate for us to speak for that person.

Thanks sir.
You have solved my problem

Hi,
Is whose an interrogative determiner?

Hello jenneec,

'Whose' can be a pronoun (when it is not followed by a noun) or a possessive determiner (when it is followed by a noun). It can be used to form a question but it can also be used in other ways.

 

Best wishes,

Hi,
So it is a possessive interrogative determiner?
Can it come under interrogative determiners ?

Thankyou.

Hi jenneec,

Yes, when it precedes a noun in a question it is a possessive interrogative determiner.

 

Best wishes,

Should I say "what's your favourite day of the week" or "which is your favorite day of the week"? Many English guidelines say that we should use "which" when there's a limited set of choices. In this case, is it better to use "which" in that sentence?
