Who and Whom

WHO is used when we refer to the subject of a sentence.

WHOM is used when we refer to the object of a verb or preposition.

If you can replace the word with he or she then use who.

  • Who is going to the movies tonight?
  • She is going to the movies tonight.

‘She’ (or he) works here so you use ‘who’.

If you can replace it with him or her use whom.

  • The soccer teams is coached by whom?
  • By whom is the soccer team coached?
  • The soccer team is coached by her.
