  • Singular form : masculine / feminine Lequel / laquelle = which one
  • Plural form : masculine / feminine Lesquels / lesquelles = which ones
  • Singular form : masculine / feminine Quel / Quelle = which
  • Plural form : masculine / feminine Quels / Quelles = which

Ex : "Lequel veux-tu ?" = "Which one do you want ?" - "Je ne sais pas dans quel panier le mettre." = "I don't know in which basket I should put it."

Also, note that in an exclamation or interrogative sentence, "Quel / Quels / Quelle / Quelles" can be translated as "What / What a".

Ex : "Quelle magnifique journée !" = "What a beautiful day !" - "Quel est ce bruit ?" = "What is that noise ?"

How can you tell the difference between Lesquelle, Laquelle, Lequel and Quelle? In what situation would you use each of these?

Both "Apples ? Which ones ?" and "Some apples ? Which ones ?" should be accepted.

But not "The apples ? Which ones ?", which would be translated as "Les pommes ? Lesquelles ?"
