What's the difference between 'que' and 'quel' ?

I thought they were the same as English's what and which but I feel like that's wrong.

Hi Tibor, 

Please take a look at the following associated Kwiziq lessons :

1. que 

Que = Whom, which, that (relative pronouns)

 

2. quel 

Questions: Quel, quels, quelle, quelles = Which / what ?

There are used in French in very different situations.

Hope this helps!
