Qu'est-ce qui marche le mieux ?

Qu'est-ce qui marche le mieux ?

What is the difference between:

Qu'est-ce qui marche le mieux ?

and the Que from the interrogative lesson Questions: Que ... = What?, e.g. :

Que marche le mieux?

What's the best way to recognize what is the best solution to use? The first thing that jumps out to me is that Que marche le mieux might be incorrect b/c there is not really a subject, but I would appreciate a more formal explanation, thank you!

Hi Alex,

'Que marche le mieux' is indeed incorrect as que is an object and doesn't work with the verb 'marcher' which is intransitive ( has no object).

Here are a few examples using que and qu'est ce qui -

Que voulez-vous ? What do you want ? 

Que me racontez-vous! = What are you telling me!

Qu'est-ce qui vous arrive ? What is happening to you?

You might say -

Qui marche le plus vite ? = Who walks the fastest?

Hope this helps.
