    Quick who/whom Q

    Are the "whoms" in these sentences correct or should it be "who?"

    The woman whom I met on the bus is Mr. Tomas' wife.

    I met the man whom the author wrote about in his book.

    TY!

    They appear to be correct "whoms" to me.

    Perhaps a good review would be the nominative case?

    Re: Quick who/whom Q

    If you want to use whom in the second, why not move the preposition and say about whom the author...?
