Hvilken is, in general, used to single out one object among many.

Hvilken avis leser du? Which newspaper do you read? Hvilk -en in front of a feminine noun (ei avis)
Hvilket bord vil du ha? Which table do you want? Hvilk -et in front of a neuter noun (et bord)
Hvilke aviser leser du? Which newspapers do you read? Hvilk -e in front of plural nouns (aviser)
