I used "Cuál" thinking that what's on television is a limited, although large, selection. Like the example: "Cuál es tu flor favorita".
Why is "Qué" used here?
i would guess "Qué" because not specific. I wish this was answered. If in the example they were in front of flower stand example would be better.
I think more types of flowers in world then tv shows. over a 1,000 types or dahilas and roses each
Hola Seth y Goo,
I can understand your confusion because we English speakers would often use that question to mean “What [programme] are you watching on television.” However, in the lesson they strongly emphasise that “cuál” has a sense of “which one,” so if they had wanted the “cuál” answer, they would have used a question like “which programme are you watching on television;” but they didn’t. Hence “qué.” The question setters are very consistent in picking up on the key differentiating factors. Saludos. John
