WHOSE*

Can you help me?

I never know when to use "whom."

-fuse.

YOU ONLY USE "WHOM" WHEN THE SENTENCE CAN BE ALTERENATED WITH THE WORDS "HIM/HER"; AND "WHO" CAN BE USED WHEN THE SENTENCE CAN BE ALTERNATED TO "HE/SHE."

 

EXAMPLES:

 

THE GRAMMAR NAZI WAS THE PERSON TO WHOM I GAVE THE MIDDLE FINGER TO. (I GAVE *HIM* THE MIDDLE FINGER.)

 

JANET WAS THE ONE WHOM I HAD A 69 WITH LAST WEEK. (I HAD A 69 WITH *HER* LAST WEEK.)

 

THAT GUY WAS THE ONE WHO FARTED. (*HE* FARTED.)

 

SARAH WAS THE WHORE WHO SLEPT WITH EVERYONE. (*SHE* SLEPT WITH EVERYONE.)

 

"WHOM" IS ALWAYS USED IN THE OBJECTIVE CASE AND "WHO" IS ALWAYS USED IN THE SUBJECTIVE CASE.
