    He has a niece whom he seldom sees.
    He has a niece that he seldon sees.
    He has a niece he seldom sees.

    Note, for some speakers whom sounds rather fuddy-duddy, which is why they opt for that or even leave out the relative pronoun altogether, especially when it functions as a conjunction.
