Shouldn't it be Que instead of Cual? Cual means which one right?

In the case of "significado" we use "cuál".

Is there a guideline for when to use cual and when to use que?

Pretty much any question that, in English, begins with "What is..." will use "Cuál es" and "What are..." will be "Cuáles son". It may not seem like it at first, but in these situations "which is" and "which are" though not natural sounding, actually still make sense in English.
