    Fourth Form, Lesson 12, Henle exercise 276

    Why does the Henle answer key translate the purpose clause as quo instead of qui? I thought we were supposed to use the nominative, and since the subject is plural and we assume it is masculine, it should be qui.

    Thanks for your help!

    You cannot use "qui" because a relative clause of purpose cannot be used when it would refer to the subject of an active verb (bottom of p. 258). Furthermore, all of the purpose clauses in Ex. 276 contain comparatives (more easily, longer) and when you have a comparative, you use "quo" as explained in section 4 on p. 263.
