Que: used to refer to people, animals, and things. Example: “El libro que leí ayer” (The book that I read yesterday).
Quien/quiénes: used to refer to people. Example: “La chica con quien hablé” (The girl who I talked to).
Cuyo/a/os/as: used to indicate possession. Example: “El chico cuyo padre es médico” (The boy whose father is a doctor).
Donde: used to refer to places. Example: “El lugar donde vivimos” (The place where we live).
