'Whom' is the object pronoun; 'whose' is the possessive adjective.

Hi,

Previous question :
My mother is the one who sings on TV every morning.

The next question:
......... shoes are those?

and the answer is whose, why not who?

Thank you

'who sings' = subject + verb
'whose shoes are' = adjective + subject + verb

Hi Jonida,

I've written some notes on these relative pronouns (which/who/whom/whose and that), which may be useful to you:

and also a story showing how they are used:

Let me know if they help.

Alan

Here is a simple summary, Lourdes:

Subject pronouns: who, I, he, she, we, they. Who bought the hat? She bought the hat.
Object pronouns: whom, me, him, her, us, them. The car hit whom? The car hit him.
Possessive adjectives: whose, my, his, her, our, their. Whose dog is this? This is her dog.
Possessive pronouns: whose, mine, his, hers, ours, theirs. Whose is this? This is mine.

Does that help?

Hi Lourdes,

Here are both pronouns in the same sentence: A man whom I saw just now was the man whose car you hit just now.
