Qu’est-ce que te manque .. means What are you missing. Why is it te and not tu? Tx
This question relates to:French lesson "Qu'est-ce qui + [verb] = What [does]..."

What would be the most helpful would be an exercise with 10-20 questions where I was asked to select between Qu'est-ce que and Qu-est-ce qui. That is really the question - will I be able to select the right one in the right situation.
Are there any focused exercises like this anywhere in Kwiziq? I heard there were but I haven't managed to find them.
While I know the grammar explanation to your question, the simplest way that I have found to remember the difference is this:
qu'est-ce que is usually followed by a noun subject
qu'est-ce qui is usually followed by a verb
While I understand this is an over-simplification, the structure in a phrase almost always is like this.
