    whom

    Hi,

    Whom you were speaking to?
    You were speaking to whom?

    Are both of above-mentioned sentences correct?

    Thanks,
    Joe

    They are both incorrect (sorry!)

    Who were you speaking to?
    To whom were you speaking?

    Just remember, it's only "whom" when it comes directly after a preposition.

    Who are you talking to?
    To whom are you talking?

    Who did you walk to school with?
    With whom did you walk to school?

    Who did you get that beautiful necklace from?
    From whom did you get that beautiful necklace?
