    Re: Chess

    I have no idea what you are asking. Are you asking for the name of chess pieces? If so, what does that have to with "carom"?

    not a teacher

    "…with which's help…" is not correct English.

    I think you mean, "What do we call those pieces with which we play carrom or chess?"

    – carrom men (although I believe there are regional variations)
    – chess pieces, chessmen

    "... with whose help ..." or "... with the help of which ..."
    But you don't need a sentence with 'help', as JMurray has shown you.
