    Which or who?

    Look at this sentence: The government will help families which are in need.
    My boss changed the relative pronoun "which" to "who" in this sentence. All this while, I have used "which" for family or families. Which one is right, "which" or "who"? Or can we use both? Or one is better than the other?

    Re: Which or who?

    Look at this sentence Please have/take a look at this sentence: "The government will help families which are in need."
    My boss changed the relative pronoun "which" to "who" in this sentence. All this while(Up to now), I have used "which" for family or families. Which one is right, "which" or "who"? Or can we use both? Or one is .is one better than the other?


    The problem here is that the choice is not between 'which' and 'who', but 'that' and 'who'...and the choice is 'that'.

    "...people who are in need..." - yes

    Search for the difference between 'which' and 'that'.

    Great question.
