Use of Relative Pronouns

Post by natttt

The relative pronouns are "who," "whom," "that," and "which." The compounds "whoever," "whomever," and "whichever" are also relative pronouns.

You can use the relative pronouns "who" and "whoever" to refer to the subject of a clause or sentence, and "whom" and "whomever" to refer to the objects of a verb, a verbal or a preposition.


Examples of the use of the relative pronouns:

You may invite whomever you like to the party.
The candidate who wins the greatest popular vote is not always elected.
In a time of crisis, the manager asks the workers whom she believes to be the most efficient to arrive an hour earlier than usual.
Whoever broke the window will have to replace it.
The crate which was left in the corridor has now been moved into the storage closet.
I will read whichever manuscript arrives first.
