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.

Thank you for your answers. Yours are exactly the same as mine. But the suggested answers that I got were: what and better. Which ones are correct? Or both? Thank you.

Thank you. I got other answers such as WHICH and MORE. But the paper got the same answers as you showed to me. And you are the only one did so, so far. Would you explain that further to me? Thank you very much.

I appriciate your support very much. But how do you think about WHAT and BETTER? Will they do here? The paper gave us these two words. Thank you.

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!
