    whose

    Hi

    Can I use "whose" only with animate objects like (people, flowers, animals)?

    Can't I say: the car whose bumper has been damaged

    or maybe I should write: the car which bumper has been damaged (or: the bumper of which...)

    thanks

    This would actually be a mistake.
