It relates to number/gender. Plural will be vilka and inga (e.g. which flowers, vilka blommor?), en words are vilken/ingen (e.g. no winner, ingen vinnare), ett words are vilket/inget (e.g. which table, vilket bordet?).

Snommelp is right. Always pay attention to the endings of words! (in general, -a is plural, -en is common, and -ett is neuter) Write it down if that helps. Trust me, this will become a problem later on if you don't really nail it down in your head :)

The concept of agreement is something that takes a lot of practice. I just passed the last checkpoint and I still mess it up from time to time.
