Interrogative and Indefinite Pronouns

149. The Indefinite Pronouns quis, any one, and quī, any, are declined like the corresponding Interrogatives, but qua is commonly used for quae except in the nominative plural feminine:—

SUBSTANTIVE:quis, any one; quid, anything.
ADJECTIVE:quī, qua ( quae ), quod, any.

a. The feminine forms qua and quae are sometimes used substantively.

b. The indefinites quis and quī are rare except after , nisi, , and num, and in compounds (see § 310. a, b).

Note— After these particles quī is often used as a substantive and quis as an adjective (cf. § 148 . b. N.).
