Is the following sentence correct?

"I'm torn between choosing the white color font and black one."

What about this one?

"I'm torn between choosing the white color font or black one."

Should I use only "and" between two options? Or maybe "or" as well?

    Most people would omit choosing (which is implied) and color (which is redundant). Simply: I'm torn between the white font and the black one. – Ronald Sole Oct 9 '18 at 13:26
  • Please add more detail about why you are interested in this idiom, and why you think your usage might be right or wrong? Otherwise the question may be closed as proofreading. – Andrew Oct 9 '18 at 13:35
  • You could be torn over choosing white or black, but I'd agree with Ronald Sole, you are torn between white and black. – Tᴚoɯɐuo Oct 9 '18 at 14:14

This would be correct:

"I'm torn between the white color font and the black one."

You don't need to use "choosing".
