tout vs tout ce qui/que

when is tout used rather than full tout ce qui/que?

ChrisC1 Kwiziq Q&A super contributor Correct answer

the ce qui/ce que adds the "that". Tout is just "everything". Tout ce que is "everything that".

Il aime tout. -- He likes everything.
Il aime tout ce qui sent bon. -- He likes everything that smells good.

Hi Carol,

You will be able to assess the various uses without the pronouns ce que, ce qui.

Hope this helps.
