Goodness, what a ruckus.

If it is going to be so contentious, what about adding in a WHICH to the WHO, WHAT AND WHERE?

You cannot have a which: which is indicative of choice between two or more things.

similarly it give:  What
 1. As the ordinary interrogative pronoun of neuter gender, orig. sing., in later use also pl., used of a thing or things: corresponding to the demonstrative that

I hope that clarifies the situation

but if you posed the question Which one am I you would have to give a choice.
i.e I am a mountain: which one am I?
you could not simply state Which one am I? as you would have no idea what you were looking for.
