What is the difference between "care" and "ce"? my teacher once said something like "'care' ist used when someone is supposed to choose from a given set and can be answered with 'that one', while 'ce' needs a real answer" -- but that doesn't really fit?

In my opinion it does fit: the question chooses from the set of all possible names. The answer to ”ce este…” could be ”un cuvânt de trei silabe” (a three-syllable word).

English uses ”what” for both variants, making the difference a bit hard to grasp.
