    1. PRONOUN
    1) (in direct and indirect questions, reported speech)

    Which/which one/ which ones in direct and indirect questions and after expressions of (un)certainty and doubt (e.g. no sé) usually translate as cuál/cuáles: cuál

    which do you want? (offering one) ¿cuál quieres?; (offering two or more) ¿cuáles quieres?

    which of you did it? — ¿cuál de vosotros lo hizo?

    which of you is Kathleen? — ¿cuál de vosotras es Kathleen?

    In relative clauses where which defines the noun it refers to, you can usually translate it as que. Note that in this type of sentence which can be substituted by that in English: que

    do you remember the house which we saw last week? — ¿te acuerdas de la casa que vimos la semana pasada?

    If [which] is the object of a preposition, you can either translate it as [que] (usually preceded by the definite article) or as article + [cual]/[cuales]. Use the second option particularly in formal language or after long prepositions or prepositional phrases:

    your letter, which I received this morning, cheered me up — tu carta, que or more frm la cual he recibido esta mañana, me ha levantado el ánimo

    the bull which I'm talking aboutel toro del que or more frm del cual estoy hablando

    the hotel at which we stayedel hotel en el que or more frm en el cual nos hospedamos

    he explained the means by which we could achieve our objective — explicó los medios a través de los cuales podíamos alcanzar nuestro objetivo

    If instead of defining the noun the [which] clause merely adds additional information, you can translate [which] using either [que] or article + [cual]/[cuales]:

    the oak dining-table, which was a present from my father, seats 10 people comfortably — la mesa de roble, que or la cual fue un regalo de mi padre, admite cómodamente diez comensales

    When which refers to the whole of a preceding sentence or idea, translate as lo que or lo cual:

    it rained hard which upset her — llovió mucho, lo que or lo cual le disgustó

    they left early, which my wife did not like at all — se marcharon pronto, lo cual or lo que no agradó nada a mi mujer

    After a preposition only [lo cual] can be used:

    after which we went to bed — después de lo cual nos acostamos

    from which we deduce that... — de lo cual deducimos que...

    2. ADJECTIVE
    1) (in direct and indirect questions, reported speech)
    When which is used as an interrogative adjective, translate using qué + noun when the possibilities are very open or cuál/cuáles de + article + plural noun when the possibilities are limited: qué

    which house do you live in? — ¿en qué casa vives?

    which day are they coming? — ¿qué día vienen?

    which picture do you prefer? — ¿qué cuadro prefieres?, ¿cuál de los cuadros prefieres?

    which option do you prefer? — ¿cuál de las alternativas prefieres?

    which way did she go? — ¿por dónde se fue?

    which one? — ¿cuál?

    look which way you will... — mires por donde mires...

    he used "peradventure", which word is now archaic — frm dijo "peradventure", palabra que ha quedado ahora anticuada
