Listen to the lesson:

When do we use who and whom?

Use the he/him method.

He = who

Him = whom

When he can be used in a sentence, we use who.

  • Did he close the door?
  • Who closed the door?
  • He closed the door.

When him can be used in a sentence, we use whom.

  • Should I ask him about my exams?
  • Whom should I ask about my exams?
  • You should ask him about your exams.
