    Who and whoever should be used as a subject. Whom and whomever should be used as objects of prepositions.

    EXAMPLES:

    Using relative pronouns who and whom in the proper case.

    When who and whom (or whoever and whomever) appear in subordinate clauses (groups of words which contain a subject and a verb), their case is determined by their function within the clause. To choose the correct pronoun, you must isolate the subordinate clause and then look at its internal structure. In the following examples, the relative pronouns function as subjects in the subordinate clauses:

    1. The prize goes to the runner who collects the most points.

    - The subordinate clause is who collects the most points. The verb of the clause is collects , and its subject is who .

    2. He tells that story to whoever will listen.

    - In this case, the object of the preposition is the entire noun clause whoever will listen . The verb of the clause is will listen, and its subject is whoever.

    When it functions as an object in a subordinate clause, whom appears out of order, before both the subject and the verb. To choose the correct pronoun, you must mentally restructure the clause.

    1. I saw Gene, a basketball player whom I had met after the game.

    - Whom is the direct object of had met . To find the direct object, read the subject and verb and then ask what or whom .

    2. The tutor whom I was assigned to was very supportive.

    - Whom is the object of the preposition to . That preposition can be moved in front of its object to make smoother reading: The tutor to whom I was assigned was very supportive.

    謝謝
