How do you know when to use que/qui instead of ce que/qui
This question relates to:French lesson "Ce que (vs ce qui) = what, which (relative pronouns)"

Bonjour Helena, That's a very interesting question indeed! Let's point out first that we're talking about the relative pronouns here, which are used to introduce a new information in a sentence (as opposed to question words like "what?"). Once you know this, the separation is quite simple: "qui/que" can mean "who/which/that ..." whereas "ce qui/ce que" mean "what ...".
I hope that's helpful!

Bonne journée !
