e.g. Can you repeat what he said?

1. Can you repeat the thing which he said? (what =relative pronoun)

2. Can you repeat___? + What did he say? (what=interrogative pronoun)

(What does the example sentence mean? Does it mean #1 or #2? Is 'what' a relative pronoun or an interrogative pronoun?))

The first sentence and #1 mean about the same thing.

In #1, "which" is a relative pronoun.

In #2, "What" is an interrogative pronoun.

Thank you for your help.

    Yes, "what" is a relative pronoun in that sentence. It can be an interrogative program if it introduces the question.
