Linguistic LingField(s):  Syntax

Query:   Dear all,

In a study of the syntax of multiple wh-XP interrogatives especially
in Polish, Ewa Dornisch (''Discourse-Linking and Multiple
_wh_-Questions in Polish'', in Gussmann, E. (ed.), _Licensing in Syntax
and Phonology_, 1995) describes the following context for multiple
wh-XP interrogatives:

''After A's birthday party, A and B are standing in front of the table
on which the gifts are piled. B wants to know who gave A each
particular gift.''

I would like to know if the following multiple wh-XP interrogatives
are acceptable for speakers of English in this context:

(1) What did who bring?
(2) Which present did who bring?

Thank you very much in advance.
