Hi Lynn,

You might start by looking at the two following lessons on those two relative pronouns -

'que' is more straightforward than 'dont' so maybe start with this -

Que = Whom/which/that (French Relative Pronouns)

Dont = Whose (French Relative Pronouns)

As Jim says, this is broad subject to answer in a quick reply but please come back to us with more specific questions and we'll be glad to help.

Bonne Continuation !

Salut Lynn,

In the absence of the kwiziq question or lesson that you are having difficulty with there is no understanding of context.
