    Which of us meal finishes last he will wash the dishes.

    Hi. Is the use of ' which of us' correct in the following sentence and can I use ' whose ' instead of ' which of us ' and can I say this sentence without a subject after 'last' ?


    Which of us meal finishes last he will wash the dishes.

    More naturally: Whoever finishes the meal last has to wash the dishes.

    That's not a recipe for good digestion.

    You'll hear "Whichever one of us finishes last ..." in BrE.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Also: 'Last to finish does the washing-up'.
