    More about relative pronouns. (summary)

    qui = who, which, that, whom = subject (for persons and things) OR object of preposition, for persons

    que (qu') = whom, which, that = object of verb (for persons and things)

    lequel, laquelle, lesquels, lesquelles = which = objct of prepositions, for things

    dont = of whom, of which, whose = for persons and things

    où = where, in which, on which = expressions of location

    ce qui = what/that which = subject

    ce que (ce qu') = what/ that which = object of verb

    ce don't = what/that of which = with expressions taking "de"

    You may not have met all of them yet so I didn't give you anything in depth but you'll have a "preview" of what is to come!
