A lot of English language learners confuse these words and tend to use them incorrectly.

Here is a simple explanation for who and whom.

β˜›First we need to learn subject and object:

Subject: doing something. (WHO)

Object: having something done to them. (WHOM)

When to Use WHO

Who is a subject pronoun. (I,you,he,she,it etc)

β–ΊWho won the race?

HIM β†’ WRONG
HE won the race β†’ CORRECT

β–ΊWho made this?

HER β†’ WRONG
SHE made it β†’ CORRECT

Use WHO to ask which person does an action or which person is a certain way.

 

When to Use WHOM

Whom is an object pronoun. (me, you, him,her etc)

β–ΊWhom do you believe?

HE β†’ WRONG
I believe in HIM β†’ CORRECT

β–ΊFor whom does the bell toll?

THEY β†’ WRONG
For THEM β†’ CORRECT

Remember!☺ WHO fits anywhere HE fits and WHOM is used wherever HIM fits.

WHO β†’ HE
WHOM β†’ HIM
