Hello teachers,
Do you agree about the definition for 'which' below? Is it correct to use 'selection' instead of 'choice' in it?
Which introduces questions about a specific selection from a limited number of possibilities.

Thanks.

MacMillan dictionary : "Which is used for asking for a specific choice from a limited number of possibilities".

But the word "selection" is correct, too.
