If there is a choice given for two persons to attend a meeting which of the given sentences would be right.

Any which one of you can attend.


Any one of you can attend.

Is one better than the other or are they both equally correct?

  • The first is ungrammatical. The second is grammatical. But it would also be correct to say - "Any one of which of you can attend". But the last would only follow a specific reference to the two people concerned. e.g. "They are providing one ticket per couple, any one of which can attend". – WS2 Nov 2 '18 at 20:33

For two persons neither is better, and both are not optimal English grammar.


Either of you can attend.

I agree with lbf,"Either of you can attend." for the exact reason that was given.

I did want to point out though, if this was your Boss speaking, please think it over before you correct her/him. Some people do not like being corrected and many of them seem to be the Boss !
