1 Answer 1

All three of these are correct.

  1. What days do you go swimming

This would be asked if the questioner has reason to believe that the person being questioned swims on more than one day.

  1. What day do you go swimming

This would be asked is the questioner believes that the person being asked only swims on one day.

  1. On what days do you go swimming

This is equivalent to 1 in meaning and nuance. If I had to manufacture a difference, I'd say that 3 is slightly less formal than 1.
