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. Wedding Formal Ladies Women Crystal Clutch Handbag UNYU Pleated Purse Evening Evening Silver Designer Bags for Satin ¿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. Suede Handbag Wedding Genuine Clutch Green Olive Cross Purse Leather Bag Over Party Bags Envelope Italian zz05qf ¿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'.
