It’s likely that you are already fairly familiar with que.
In this lesson we’re only focussing on the form of que that is a pronom relatif. Of the above sentences, it’s the 3rd sentence which contains a pronom relatif. The que in the other sentences are for another topic.
Things get confusing when using technical language, so let’s get clear on the role of a pronom relatif in a sentence.
Que is a pronom relatif that represents direct objects in a sentence.
A sentence doesn’t always require an object. E.g.
But when it does have one AND there is no preposition, the object is called a direct object.
The direct object can be a person or a thing.
The pronom relatif que comes into play when we want to flip the sentence around and mention the object first.
