"Which one does she find?"

Translation:Elle trouve lequel ?

February 6, 2013



How do you know when to use lequel v.s. laquelle?

April 12, 2014


I put "laquelle" and it was accepted. I believe it just has to agree with the subject in number and gender and since "one" could be either gender, wither should work.

Why is it "Lequel trouve-t-elle?" instead of "Lequel trouve-elle?"

February 6, 2013


My understanding is that you can't start with a vowel when the previous word ended with one. Like we put l'eau instead of la eau or Ou va-t-il instead of Ou va il.

I think the point is to allow the words to flow a little better.

Yeah you're right. I think I've seen it called "euphony" in other threads

March 4, 2016


Or a liason?

February 18, 2018


is it because the verb ends with a vowel?

June 7, 2013


I believe so.

July 22, 2015


Even though the 'e' doesn't have to be pronounced / have emphasis on it?

What does the "t" between trouve and elle mean? How do I know when to use it?

November 6, 2014


The T has no meaning. It's used to make the words easier to pronounce. It's just like saying "AN apple" instead of "A apple" in English. The added N doesn't mean anything. It's just an added sound to make the words easier to say.

I said "Lequel elle trouve?" Is that incorrect grammar, because it was marked wrong. Some questions are inverted, some aren't. Not sure when to.

October 7, 2015


This one suggested "Elle trouve lequel ?" is a correct answer for this question. My understanding was lequel is the masculine and laquelle is the feminine form, is it correct to use lequel here?

July 28, 2013


"lequel" does not refer to "elle", so the choise might depend on the context

August 6, 2013


It correct to use both because the 'one' in "which one" could be a masculine object or a feminine object so laquelle and lequel are both potentially correct.

September 2, 2013


Lequel est-ce qu'elle trouve? should be an acceptable and equally plausible answer

September 16, 2014


I did get credit for that, but with laquelle...

September 5, 2018


Trouve-t-elle lequel? Is wrong?

July 11, 2014


Please, can anybody help me understand why "est-ce qu'elle trouve lequel?" is not accepted as a right answer? Tks in advance

January 19, 2015


You only use "Est-ce que..." for yes/no questions, so you could ask "Est-ce qu'elle le trouve?"-- "Does she find it?" But if you want to find out which one, when, how many, etc., then you have to either use inversion, here "trouve-t-elle" or, informally, intonation with the same word order as a statement would have, "Elle trouve lequel?"

April 29, 2015


Same, I don't understand this either?

February 17, 2015


Laquelle est ce qu'elle trouve?

September 15, 2015


Why can't use Quel instead of Laquel

December 13, 2014


Cos laquel is pronoun so it can stay alone while quel is adjective so it needs a noun after.

March 16, 2015


Maybe there is a word like "trouvelle"...so that you don't mix it up. ;) ...I know that the swedish have a lot of these "easyier to speak" - modifications. Must be something like this.

Is there any mistake in "Qui est-ce qu'elle trouve?"?

December 9, 2013


I believe yours translates to 'Who does she find?' If I remember correctly the phrase 'qui est-ce que' is used in questions to denote that the object of the sentence is unknown, but it is a person. In 'Laquelle trouve-t-elle?' the word 'quelle' directly translates to 'which' and 'laquelle' is 'which one'. This question implies that the unknown object is a feminine thing - like 'une pomme'.

J'ai utilisé la phrase "Lequel cherche-t-elle." Quelqu'un sait pourquoi n'est pas correct? Merci!

September 27, 2014


Hi Patrik. Trouver = to find. Chercher = to look for.

SO - je le cherche - and THEN - je le trouve. Hope that helps. :)

November 6, 2014


I put ''lequel truve't elle'' Why it is wrong?

December 29, 2014


I put ''Lequel trove't elle?'' Why it is wrong?

December 29, 2014


Why is Laquelle-t-elle trouver?" not acceptable?

March 24, 2015


I still don't get the "t". What does it mean and more importantly what is the rule for using it?

December 12, 2015


Why is " lequel elle trouve?" marked wrong?

April 11, 2017


This is the third occurrence I have had of the exact words used in the answer, and being told I am incorrect. Please may I ask that this bug be sorted out?

July 20, 2017


The listed answer includes " Elle trouve lequel ?", which is exactly what I wrote yet it said this was wrong. Why?

January 21, 2018


Why is 'lequel est-ce qu'elle trouve' incorrect?
