When Jane does this exercise, she is puzzled. Which one should she choose, which or where?

exercise: The restaurant ______ I used to go is my favourite.

Can you help her? What is the difference in using these two? Can we ‘google’ it and figure out (find out) the answer?

*************You need to explain why you choose this answer!!!!!*********************

The restaurant where I used to
go is my favourite.

Comment by Marco fish

I think is which 🙂

Comment by christy*V*

The restaurant _WHICH_____ I used to go is my favourite.
When only for the times and where is for the places…………..

Comment by KIT

I think it is where.
The use of where is about the place and which is to describe somethings.
I think we can use ‘google’ it to find the answer.

Comment by Amy

i think it is which,because i see a word ‘used’,it is different with the exercise that i have done be4,and i think it will not be so easy, as Mrs Bouteiller post it here! haha=]

Comment by alex

i think is which ……

which usually be asking for a thing, which an option to choose from.

Comment by Arthur

The answer is which.

Comment by Serena*

The restaurant WHICH I used to go is my favourite.

Comment by KATRINA

it is “where”
it is because the sentence is talking about the restaurant,a place is use “where”,so i think it uses “where”^^”

Comment by Harry

The restaurant “where” I used to go is my favourite.
It is because restaurant is a place, so we should use “where”

Comment by Jessica

i think is ‘which’!
The restaurant which I used to go is my favourite.

Comment by kik0:D

I thinlk the answer shouold be ‘which’.
Because the sentence care about ‘her favourite'(that is feeling) more than the restaurant.
=)

Comment by B0W!E:)

I think the answer is ‘which’.
(The restaurant which I used to go is my favourite.)It is because this sentence is desoribing her favourite not the place of the restaurant. :-p

Comment by Michelle

i think it is “which”.
because “where” emphasises the fronter info;
but “which” emphasises the following info

Comment by da!sy

I think the answer is ‘which’.
It’s because there are many restaurants that she can choose from, and it doesn’t say any exact locations.

Comment by Joel

I think it is ‘which’.

Comment by Karina;)

I think the answer is “which” because I found a similar sentence on the Internet.^^

Comment by Jing

Comment by ting@@

I think the answer is ‘which’ : P

Comment by Jenny

I think the answer should be
“The restaurant which I used to go is my favourite.”
It is because I think where is taking about only a place but which can also taking about thing.

Comment by Jason

The restaurant which I used to go is my
favourite.
Because ‘I’like the restaurant such as food
Not that place.So it should use ‘which’.

Comment by CatffanY

Here is my opinion~

I think the answer is ‘where’.
“The restaurant where I used to go is my favourite.”
“Restaurant”is a place that the sentence is mentioned.
“Which” is talking about “thing”, and “where” is talking about “place”.

Comment by Angel

The restaurant where I used to go is my favourite.

Comment by Denis Lai

Comment by CCK

I think the answer is ‘WHICH’!

Comment by Vincy

which (choice of restaurant)

Comment by SUM

I think is which because it’s not talking about the place.The main point is that restaurant.

Comment by coco

I think the answer is “which”.
It is because this sentance is about ‘my’ favourite restaurant(favourite= the one that I like most).And there are many restaurant but I choose this restaurant to be my favourite, so I think the answer is “which”.

Comment by Melody

I think is which
because it is a place

Comment by Raphael

I think the answer is ‘where’

Comment by jenna

I think the answer should be ‘where’,
because the restaurant is the most important part in this sentence.

Comment by Yvonne:)

i think is where ^^
The restaurant where I used to
go is my favourite.

Comment by leo

My answer is which!It is because i think that this sentence is talk about the one that she used to go is only this restaurant.

Comment by Tiffany

I Think is ‘which’ too.;]

Comment by Michael

I think it should be which because it is not talking about the location.

Comment by grammy

The answer is ‘where’.=)
‘Which’ is used for a thing, either as the subject or as the object
‘Where’ shows a place.
‘Where’ and ‘which’ are totally difference…

Comment by Erica

I think it’s where.
Because ‘where’is about a place.

Comment by Natalie

The restaurant ___which___ I used to go is my favourite.

Comment by Candy

Comment by Geoffrey

I think it should be ‘where’.Because ‘restaurant’ is talking about the place but not a thing.

Where
Because restaurant is a place,so I use where,which is for things,not for place.

Comment by jerry

which!!

Comment by ashley

I think it’s WHICH because a restaurant can be a object but not a place.

Comment by LISKA

my answer is: where

because restaurant is a place, if we divide
it into two sentences, it would be “I used
to go to the restaurant” and “The
restaurant is my favorite.” I think it
just sounds like”The place ____ I used to
go is my favorite” and you won’t say
“The object ___I used to go is my favorite”
Is that right?? So my final answer is
WHERE!!!

Comment by KEN

um….the answer is….which!!!!!

Comment by Janice

Which which which !!!!!
