This relates to:
Special cases when the past participle agrees (in number & gender) when used with 'avoir' in Le Passé Composé -

Bonjour Susan,


No. You need the relative pronoun que when it's serving as the direct object, but qui when it's serving as the subject. All of the examples in this lesson happen to need the direct object.


See these lessons for more info:


Relative pronoun que


Relative pronoun qui
