I'm learning English. Today, I came across such a problem, please lend me a hand. Thank you. The sentence goes like this: --"___ do you prefer, tea or coffee?" --"I like coffee __ than tea." How would you fill the blanks? Thank you for you help.

In common, spoken English, you would be understood saying: What do you prefer, tea or coffee? Which do you prefer, tea or coffee? I like coffee more than tea. I like coffee better than tea. Actually, I like coffee less than tea. I do not prefer coffee at all!
