Student or Learner
Can you give me some rules to go by as to how to use "who" and "whom" ?
Also, can you adjust the following sentences ?
1) This is the doctor who/whom operated my mother
2) She is the girl who/whom will the beauty contest
3) He is the type of guy who/whom will never learn from his mistakes.
Thank you very much.
[quote=Gilles L;229537]Thank you very much for your answer:
I appreciate that who is used for the subject and whom for the object. However,
Can you give me precise examples showing cases where word WHOM would apply?
He is the oral surgeon whom extracted me wisdom teeth. Is the oral surgeon the subject or the object ?
He is the type of guy whom does not learn from his mistakes. Is the guy the object or the subject ?
[quote=Gilles L;229546]Dear Teacher
In both cases ask yourself who is doing the action. That person is the subject.
See here for the difference: Who and whom
Please use better titles for your post than your name - it gets confusing otherwise.
