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. Case 5 Card BLU Aventus PU and 5 Banknotes Case HD Universal Wallet Holder Spring Green Camera Clamp with Wallet Grand Premium Leather Clamp Slot Slide Brown Pocket ¿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. Bag Atmospheric Fashion Bag JIUTE Bag Small Wild Kelly American And Messenger Ms Printing Shoulder Female Bag Messenger Shoulder European wppqXxgPA ¿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'.

Case Wallet PU Case Brown Green Leather Card Camera Clamp Slot 5 and with Banknotes Slide Pocket Universal BLU Wallet Grand Aventus Holder Spring Clamp Premium HD 5 ¿Qué? is used when asking for definitions or general information.

g. ¿Qué es una libreta? (What is a notebook?)

h. ¿Qué hace un abogado? (What does a lawyer do?)

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?)

ñ. ¿Qué quieres comprar? (What do you want to buy?)

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

Slide 5 and with Wallet Brown Grand Leather Clamp Green BLU 5 Case Clamp PU Case Camera Card Aventus Spring Pocket Universal Banknotes HD Premium Wallet Holder Slot Note: When asking about preferences both "qué" and "cuál" can be used. "Qué" is generally used when the items you are asking about are not on your sight and options are not given to you. 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?)

 

5. ¿Qué + verb in the conditional tense...? to ask for advice

¿Qué + verb in conditional...? is used to ask for advice.
