Who and whom, which is which?

Author:

Many a time, the clearcut distinction between who and whom is often scratched in the face. For this, this week's lesson will dance around striking a balance between these two pronouns. Sit back and read on.

Who
It should be used to refer to the subject of a sentence.

For example,
Who would like to go on strike?

Who made these awesome ogbono?

Whom
On the other, whom should be used to refer to the object of a verb or preposition.

For example,
To whom was the letter addressed?

Whom do you believe?

I do not know with whom I will go to the lecture.

Here is a simple trick you could use when in doubt about which is which between who and whom:

If you can replace the word with “he” or “she,” use WHO.

However, If you can replace it with “him” or “her,” use WHOM
