  • Who, Whom or Whose Video and Exercise 1

    Ask a native English speaker when it is correct to use Who, Whom or Whose, and they probably won’t be able to give you a good answer, especially if they are from the United States. Here, we don’t use Whom very often anymore, at least not in spoken English. The difference may seem confusing to non-native speakers too, but it is actually very easily explained, as you’ll see in our video non Who, Whom and Whose below.

    See if you can choose Who, Whom or Whose correctly below, then watch the video and try the additional exercises.

    1. (Who/Whom/Whose) rides the bike?

    2. (Who/Whom/Whose) does the dog love?

    3. (Who/Whom/Whose) bike is green?

    Watch the video below to see the answers

      Sorry, I don’t understand. I know that he/she are SUBJECT pronouns and him/her OBJECT pronouns, isn’t it? Thank you for your video and your answer!!

      • LOIEnglish

        Yes you are correct ‘he/she’ are SUBJECT pronouns. The SUBJECT pronoun does the action. He jumps off the building. ‘Him/Her’ are object pronouns. The OBJECT pronoun receives the action. He gave the gift to HER.

        When using who/whom, who replaces SUBJECT pronouns and who replaces OBJECT pronouns.

        Hope this helps!
