Phrase definition.

I'm using another website along side this and there it says ''Qu'est-ce que c'est'' means ''What is that'' where as here you say it means ''What is it''   I'm really confused.

Bonjour Darrell,

I hope you find the following clearer:

- What is it?

c’est = it is

→ Qu’est-ce que c’est? = what is it?

 

- What is this / that?

Cela / ça this or that

Qu'est-ce que c'est que cela ? What is this / that?

Qu'est-ce que c'est que ça ? What is this / that?

 

 

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !
