Who vs whom sentences examples?
Rule #1: Substitute “he/him” or “she/her”: If it’s either “he” or “she,” then it’s “who;” if it’s “him” or “her,” then it’s “whom.” “he” (whoever) is the subject of the verb “called.” In the sentence, “Give it to whoever deserves it”:([You] give it to whoever deserves it.)
Can you start a sentence with whom?
Technically, that “whom” is correct because it’s the object of the verb “called.” Yet almost no one would say it that way. It means that, when the pronoun’s at the beginning of a sentence, even the most formal writing can use “who” as an object.
Do we still use whom?
“Who” and “whom” go together like “I” and “me” or “he” and him” – one is a subject while the other is an object. “Whom” is still correct as an object, but it is very common to use “who,” especially in spoken conversation or casual writing.
Who I met or whom I met?
Yes, that’s correct. Who is used as the subject of a sentence or clause. Whom is used as the object of a preposition and as a direct object. In your sentence, the pronoun would refer to the direct object, so to be correct, you should say, “The boy whom I met at the party.”
