Le pronom relatif qui

Relative pronouns are pronouns which introduce a dependent clause and which refer to a noun or pronoun in the main clause. In English, when we say, "the man who came to dinner" we know that "who" means the same thing as "man". "Who" is used as a relative pronoun.

The relative pronoun qui replaces
a - noun subjects referring to people
b - noun subjects referring to things

- of a Qui est le garçon qui porte une cravate?
Who is the boy who is wearing a tie?

- of a Où sont les passagers qui arrivent?
Where are the passengers who are arriving?

- of b Est-ce l'avion qui arrive de Montréal?
Is this the plane which is arriving from Montreal?
