Questions 3 is the sixty-second skill (assuming read left to right) in the language tree for French. It has two lessons and teaches how to use the words quel and lequel, two important question words in French.

Grammar Notes[]


From Questions 2, we know that quel means "which", but it can also mean "what" when there is a limited number of choices to choose from. Remember that quel will change depending on gender and number:

  • Quelle est la hauteur de cette tour? = What is the height of this tower?
  • Quelle est ta série préférée? = What is your favorite TV show?
  • Quels sont ses vêtements préférés? = What are her favorite clothes?


This word can also mean "which", but always has to refer to a previously-mentioned group of objects, of which you are asked "which one" you prefer or want. Just as with quel, lequel will change depending on the gender and number of the object:

  • Il y a beaucoup de vélos dans ce magasin. -> Lequel préfères-tu?
  • J'ai deux robes. -> Laquelle vas-tu acheter?
