Often in English when we decide between options that all seem favorable, we'll say:

"I like them all, but if I had to choose, I'd go with that one!"

What is the Chinese equivalent of "if I had to choose" ? It does not need to be a direct translation, just whatever you would use in that scenario.

  • try iciba with "if I had to":1. If I had to choose between fish and chicken I'd prefer the former, ie fish. 若让我在鱼和鸡之间选择其一,我要前者(即鱼). This may suggest 若让我选择... or 让我选择的话。。。 – user6065 Nov 25 '17 at 13:27

“(如果)非要我选的话”

这些我都喜欢,非要我选的话,我要那一个!

  • Seem like it is very common to omit '不可' in sentences like "非要我选(不可)的话" – Tang Ho Nov 25 '17 at 13:24

    "(如果)一定要选的话" works too – Tang Ho Nov 25 '17 at 13:26

You can say '如果我不得不选一个' or '如果非要让我选一个' For example, 我喜欢足球,也喜欢篮球,如果非要让我选一个的话,我还是去踢足球吧。
