    relatives

    Dear teachers,

    Are all of the following constructions correct ?

    1) And now meet the lady in whom I place absolute trust.
    2) And now meet the lady whom/who/that I place absolute trust in.
    3) And now meet the lady I place absolute trust in.

    Thank you in advance,
    Hela

    Re: relatives

    In 2, the use of 'whom' with the preposition at the end sounds unnatural to me. Though technically correct, it is not commonly used- people who use 'whom' tend to follow the first pattern.
