I for one got "wrong word" for not adding redundant "date" after "show."

Aloha! It seems it is not the only answer. I have used the translation from the word bank, and it was accepted.

So, there are at least two translations here:

  • Which day of January is the show?

  • What day in January is the show?

Are not these sentences meaning the same? Since I am not a native English speaker, I think I cannot be sure about which sentence in English is better. It seems that both sentences work in this exercise. :)

I think most native English speakers would not think anything unusual if they heard the first sentence. But I think most Americans (I can't be sure about others) would say the second sentence.
