    Who - What - Which


     Interrogative words : WHO, WHAT, WHICH ? (1)

     

    Interrogative words or groups of words can be either pronouns ( = replace nouns and are placed before verbs) or adjectives (= be placed before a noun). They can either be subjects ou complements. These words introduced 'open' questions (which require a  ‘developed answer', and not only a ‘yes ‘ or ‘no' question.)

     

    1) WHO ?  is used for a person. 

    ex : Who is that wonderful girl ? (Here, 'who' is the subject of the verb.)

    ex : Who are you helping ?  (Here, 'who' is  a complement ot the verb ‘help', ‘you' is the subject.)

     

    2) WHAT ?  is used for an object, a thing. WHAT expresses a choice among many objects.

    ex : What trees grow in this part of the world? (interrogative adjective which is a subject)

    ex : What are you looking for? ( = interrogative pronoun which is a complement ; 'you' = subject of the verb : 'look for'.)                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

    3) WHICH ? ; is used for an object too, but then, the choice is limited.

    ex : Which  fruit is yours? The apple, or the peach? ( interrogative pronoun, which is a subject)

    ex : Which hand do you use? ( interrogative adjective, which is a complement.)

     

                                                                       

     

    4) When should you USE AN AUXILIARY? Only if the interrogative word is a complement .

    ex : Who gave you this cake?   (who =  a subject => no auxiliary)

    ex : Who did you meet when you were in Paris? ( who = complement => necessity of an auxiliary.)

    Well! It's time to do the test! Good luck!
