    “In which lesson she doesn’t need to study for a test? ”

    “In which lesson she doesn’t need to study for a test? ”
    Is the sentence correct or should we use the word subject?

    Re: “In which lesson she doesn’t need to study for a test? ”

    It's not correct for more than one reason.

    For which subject does she not need to study for the test?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Perhaps:

    What subject does she not need to study?

    That's OK but it loses the specific idea of her studying for a test in that subject.

    A: She doesn't need to study for the test.
    B: What subject does she not need to study for?

    (Study for the test.
    Forget the rest!)
