    royal stronghold

    Which of the following options makes sense, whom, which, them or it?
    My answer is (A) whom because the relative pronoun “whom” refers to its antecedent “visitors.”

    Mr. Martinez, a postman’s son and the Louvre’s president since April 2013, is moving quickly to make a democratic mark on the royal stronghold that has the most visitors of any museum in the world, 70 percent of ____________ foreign tourists.

    (A) whom (B) which (C) them (D) it

    Re: royal stronghold

    If you use "whom", you would need to add "are" before "foreign tourists". On the assumption that you copied the question correctly and "are" does not appear, the only possible answer is C (them).

    I have six cats, two of them black.

    This means the same as "I have six cats; two of them are black" but note the difference in punctuation between them.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
