Dictation exercise C1
'que' is used here because it refers to ''jungle urbaine' which is the object of the verb 'représentent'. The subject of 'représentent' is 'les transports en commun' (clue: ending of 'représentent' -> 3rd person of the plural = ils / elles - they). As 'jungle urbaine' is singular it cannot be the subject. As per the lesson content: "In grammar jargon, we use qui when it's the subject of the verb, and que when it's the object of the verb."
I hope this is helpful.
Bonne journée !
Worth a look at the 'en résumé' section of the attached by Laura Lawless for further reference on why 'que-verb' construct is correct here, contrary to the more usually seen 'qui-verb' construct.
This use of inversion in French is quite difficult to get one's head around, I find !
