Ed Manley inquired about the use of "that" and "which."

Speaking as an editor, the correct word choice is "that." I use "which"
only when it is preceded by a comma or if "that" has already been used in
the sentence. (I know that some instances of "which" not preceded by a
comma are correct, although that usage seems to have fallen out of style.)

An explanation can be found at the following URL (restrictive and
nonrestrictive clauses):
