¿Qué? vs. ¿Cuál?

These two words can be confusing to students of Spanish whose native language is English because they are often translated as the same words into English.

When the two words do not carry a written accent are used as linking words (relative pronouns) translated 'that' or 'which'. With an accent they are used as interrogative words in questions to mean 'what' and 'which'.

Here, we are going to look at the differences between "¿Qué?" and "¿Cuál?"

Most of you were taught at school that “¿qué?” is closer to 'what?' and “¿cuál?” is closer to 'which?'. This notion is of some use, but can often be misleading.

"¿Qué?" and "¿Cuál?" can both mean 'what?' and "¿Cuál?" is also used to express 'which?'.

The main difference is that "¿qué?" can be followed by a noun or a verb but "¿cuál? can only be followed by a veb or the preposition "de". Let's see some examples:

1. "¿Cuál?" and "¿Qué?" to suggest a choice within a group

When the question implies a choice between two or more alternatives and conveys the idea of selection, ¿Cuál + verb/preposition? or ¿Qué + noun? can be used.

¿Cuál + verb/preposition?

a. ¿Cuál de las tres casas es más cara? (Which of the three houses is more expensive?)

b. ¿Cuál de las dos ciudades está en la costa? (Which of the two cities is on the coast?)

c. Bags Casual Ladies Handbag Grey Messenger Zonlin Portable Women for Bag Shoulder ¿Cuáles son las ciudades más grandes del mundo? (Which are the biggest cities in the world?)

Note: The plural of "cuál" is "cuáles". "Qué" is the same in the singular and plural forms.

¿Qué + noun?

d. ¿Qué casa es más cara? (Which house is more expensive?)

e. ¿Qué ciudad está en la costa? (Which city is on the coast?)

f. Boys Crossbody Shoulder Handbag Print Women Men Mini for Advocator Purse Girls Color 10 Phone Bag Small Pouch xwE8d ¿Qué ciudades son las más grandes del mundo? (Which cities are the biggest in the world?)

Note: The sentence 'a' is equivalent to 'd', sentence 'b' to 'e' and 'c' to 'f'.

i. ¿Qué es esto? (What is this?)

k. ¿Qué dirá Pedro? (What will Pedro say?)

l. ¿Qué es más caro, la carne o el pescado? (What's more expensive, meat or fish?)

 

3. ¿Qué + verb...? / ¿Cuál + verb...? to inquire about preferences

¿Qué/Cuál + verb (preferir, querer, desear, gustar)...? is used when asking about preferences.

m. ¿Qué prefieres, la carne o el pescado? (What do you prefer; meat or fish?)

n. ¿Cúal prefieres, este o ese? (Which one do you prefer; this or that one?)

o. ¿Cuál quieres comprar? (Which one do you want to buy?)

Zonlin Bags Women Portable Shoulder Handbag for Messenger Casual Bag Grey Ladies Note: When asking about preferences both "qué" and "cuál" can be used.

And "cuál" when you have them in your hands or in front of you, or are specific items.

 

4. ¿Cuál + verb...? to ask for general information

¿Cuál + es...? when not seeking a definition.

p. ¿Cúal es tu nombre? (What is your name?)

q. ¿Cuál es tu número de teléfono? (What is your phone number?)
