When to use 'who' and 'whom'? #3 (permalink) Tue Jul 14, 2009 17:06 pm   When to use 'who' and 'whom'?
 

Hi Sir,

Can you explanin me when should use who and whom in a sentence.
Robert met someone yesterday. I saw it and at that time Welbert with Robert. Next day i met Robert, how should i ask him(Welbert) whom Robert met yesterday.

Who did Robert meet yesterday? or Whom did Robert meet yesterday or
whom do robert met yesterday.

Please correct me, if i made some grammer mistake in above paragraph.

Thanks in advance,
Regards,
Shaik.

Hello Mr.Shaik,

I am not a teacher, but for when I can replace the replace the relative pronoun by he, I put who, but when I can't I put whom.

Have a nice day.

dear shaik
in my opinion I think you must use " Who", because in speaking it's better to use it than "Whom"
I agree grammatically with "the french"
I hope I've been helpful.

#2 is very formal, and is now required only in formal writing. #1 is more common, and is almost the only form used in spoken English. Generally, 'whom' is slowly disappearing from the language.

Hi Mister Micawber,
According to your version, whom is still the best formal anwser in test if there are many options that include who, whom. (When it is an object.)
And if there is not a 'whom' option, in addition to 'that', 'who' maybe is the best answer, isn't it?

Is the content of the post above right?

'That' does not work in your sentences; otherwise, yes (with the caveat that I would not be surprised to find 'who' the test answer nowadays).

Thanks,

If relative pronoun questions do not have a 'that' option, I will feel better, because I don't understand when 'that' can replace 'which who whom' without breaking grammar rules.

If possible, teach me or give me a link.
