Qui or à laquelle

I know this is a grammar issue, but I need help.

in the phrase “an endless adventure she couldn’t resist” is translated to

”une aventure sans fin à laquelle elle ne pouvait pas résister”.

Why is “qui” wrong (my answer) and “à laquelle” correct?

This relates to:
À + qui, auquel, à laquelle = to whom, what, which (relative pronouns) -

Hi Judy,

It is because of the verb is 'résister à' ,  'à qui' is not possible either as aventure is not a living thing as explained in the lesson.

So the correct answer is:

'...une aventure sans fin à laquelle elle ne pouvait pas résister...'

Hope this answers your question...
