    to whom

    Hello,

    Can anyone please explain the following sentence to me?

    "The person to whom something is transferred by endorsement"

    why use "to whom"? can I use "whom" here? when do I use "to whom", "to where", "in which"?

    Thank you

    Re: to whom

    Whom is part of a prepositional phrase (PP), the head of which is the preposition to.


    Whom Replaces a Noun
    [1] Something is transferred by endorsement to whom?
    [2] Something is transferred by endorsement to a person.


    Moving the PP
    [3] ... to a person something is transferred... .
    [4] ... to whom something is transferred... .


    Modifying the Noun
    [5] ... a person to whom something is transferred... .
