What distinguishes kiu between what and who
The context. It's actally not between "what" an "who" but between "which (one)" and "who".
The lesson notes explained that when used to mean "who", there is an implicit word that's dropped:
Kiu (persono) estas blua? -- Which (person) is blue? / Who is blue?
Kiu libro estas blua? -- Which book is blue?
Does banĉambro always mean a room that contains a bath or is it closer to the English bathroom?
Before auditing this course, I never encountered the word "banĉambro" so I would assume it contains a bath. The customary word for the washroom/restroom/loo (containing a toilet) is a "necesejo".
Thank you! I figured this was the case since I already knew necesejo.
Yeah, im confused over the difference between "bancxambro" and "necesejo" - I guess if it has a bath in it then I'll say "bancxambro"
The PIV (here : http://vortaro.net/#ban%C4%89ambro) defines it as "ĉambro, kie oni sin banas, duŝas, lavas". So I guess that, as long as it is designed to wash oneself, it can be called a "banĉambro".

Grava demando inter studantoj, kiu loĝas kune...
Is "banejo" still used for bathroom? I am going back 60 years. Back then, cars were "automobiloj."
I guess: aŭtomobiloj with Ŭ :)
How do we say to get cleaned?
I tried puriĝas or puras but it dosen't seem to be the right word.
