Thx qfreed. that covers everything.

I'd just try to put it in a different way.

'lo' is usually equivalent of 'it'(english)

Example: Ver (to see) + lo (it) => verlo => Quiero (I want) verlo (to see it)

One more usage: when 'What' is at the beginning of a question: What do you want? then What = que. But if it's in the middle of a Regular sentence, it's 'lo que'

There's a third usage that qfreed has mentioned. but I haven't learnt that far yet.

I agree, but remember, that kind of "qué" uses accent on the e. - axolos, FEB 13, 2010

It can be an accusative (direct object) pronoun referring to masculine objects or persons.

It can be part of a neuter, relative pronoun...lo que. (which, that which, what, etc.)

It can be the neuter definite article used with adjectives serving as nouns. (e.g. lo bueno, lo mismo)
