28.2.1.2 Welcher? = Which (one)?


28.2.1.2.1 Substantival pronoun

Some examples
  Welchen willst du?
= Which one do you want?
  Für welchen hast du dich entschieden?
= Which one did you decide to take?

28.2.1.2.2 Adjectival pronoun

Unos examples
  Mit welchem Auto willst du nach Italien fahren?
= In which car would you like to go to Italy?
  Auf welchen Tisch hast du die Schlüssel gelegt?
= On which table did you put the keys?

* Of course one could also ask: In what car would you like to go to Italy? But this would mean in 'what kind of car', which would be in German 'in was für einem Auto willst du nach Italien fahren?'. And still then the difference is quite subtle.
