    Relative Pronouns - That or Who

    A relative pronoun connects a clause or phrase to a noun or pronoun.



    Relative pronouns are usually seen in sentences at the beginning of an adjectival clause.

    An adjectival clause functions as an adjective, modifying nouns and pronouns.

    An adjective clause starts with either a relative adverb:where, when, and why or a relative pronoun such as that, who, whom, whose, or which.

    Alright! We are discussing 'that' and 'who'.

    There are many conflicting online sources when it comes to determining whether to use 'who' or 'that' in a sentence.* 'who' refers to people. * 'that' refers to people, places, animals, things, etc.

    However, one rule is absolutely clear:*. 'who' should be used ONLY when referring to people.*. 'that' should be used when referring to other things.


    (1) Mary loves the chocolate that I bought.

    (2) The police arrested a man who Jill worked with.

    (3) We went to the village that Lucy recommended.


    In this test, let's stick to the one rule. Are you ready?
