Who, Whom or Whose
Who, whom, and whose are interrogative pronouns (pronouns that ask questions.)
1. Who is a subjective case pronoun; it is the subject of a sentence.
For example: John cleared the table. (In this sentence, John is the subject of the sentence.)
Who cleared the table? ( Who takes the place of the subject John.)
2. Whom is an objective case pronoun; it is the object of a sentence.
For example: Sam gave the book to Mr. Hall. (In this sentence, Mr. Hall is the object of the preposition to.)
Sam gave the book to whom? ( Whom takes the place of the object of the preposition, Mr. Hall.)
Another example: Lily gave Jone a vanilla ice cream. (In this sentence, Jone is the indirect object of the sentence.)
Lily gave a vanilla ice cream to whom? (whom takes the place of the indirect object, Jone.)
3. Whose is a possessive case pronoun; it shows possession.
For example: This is Carl's car.
Whose car is this?
Now, it's your turn to practise using these two interrogative pronouns!
