Which one is the same as <those>? <ones> or < the ones>?


I am still having trouble understanding the usages of <ones>, <the ones>, and <those> respectively. I understand that <those> and <the ones> are often interchangeable. What makes me understand this is the use of <the>.

But I don't know what is the important difference between <ones> with no article and < the ones>, especially followed by the relative pronoun such as <which>.

As far as I know, both can be followed by the relative clause. Then how can I tell them apart?

Are  both <ones> and <the ones> are always interchangeble with <those> so long as they are followed by the relative clause?

This is what I really want to learn.

I would really appreciate your help in advance.
