    Relative pronoun



    For a neutral antecedent (not human)
    The cat which is on the bed is very nice.


    For a human antecedent
    The man who is looking at me makes me scared.



    When we talk about possession (human or not)

    Mary whose children go to school with mine is sick.
    It's an issue whose purpose I don’t understand.



    Equal of WHOSE but preferred in formal language for neutral antecedent.

    Mind the order of the words.

     It's an issue the purpose of which I don’t understand.



    For an antecedent concerning a place:
    This is the house where I live.



    With a human antecedent, complement.

    She married a teacher whom she had met at university.



    Can substitute WHICH in the informal language and the best way after

    everything, nothing, anything, something, only, all and superlatives.


    I didn't know the child that brought this book.

    It's a rule that doesn't change my way of thought.

    He'll show you something that will surprise you.
