Relative Companion

The relative companion cuyo (cuya, cuyos, and cuyas) is mainly used in formal texts and in the written language. Cuyo is in principle a possession or affiliation, but it may not be used as a possessive companion. Cuyo follows the following noun in Genus and Numerus.

A la reunión van personas cuyas referencias son excelentes.

La señora, cuyo apellido he olvidado … – The lady, whose surname I have forgotten …

Cuyo can also stand after prepositions

Hay que visitar a la familia de cuyos hijos hemos hablado de ayer.
