Question 1 of 10

In this lesson, you will learn how to use ‘who’ and ‘whom’ correctly. A lot of people get confused when they have to use these words, as they do not know which one is appropriate when they want to ask something about a person.

 ‘Who’ is used to ask which person does an action or which person is a certain way.

  • Example 01 : Who baked the cake? (which person is performing the action of ‘baking’)
  • Example 02 : Who left the door open?
  • Example 03 : Who is taller, John or Maria? (which person is a certain way ‘taller’)

 

‘Whom’ is used to ask which person receives an action.

  • Example 01 : Whom did John hire? (which person received the action of being ‘hired)
  • Example 02 : Whom are you inviting?
  • Example 03 : Whom did he blame for the theft?
