a friend of
Is this sentence acceptable:
1-Who is he a friend of?
Re: a friend of
It would be acceptable to most in informal uses. Technically, "who" should be "whom" and some would be bothered by the terminal preposition. That being said, the repair would not be "Of whom is he a friend". That is one of those stilted sentences that nobody would use.

would probably be a better fix.
Having a more relaxed view of who\whom, I'd say it's fine .
