Please refer to the post: Who is Correct?

We like these rules and would like to expand on Rule #1 to give you just a tad bit more clarity …

Rule #1: Substitute “he/him” or “she/her”: If it’s either “he” or “she,” then it’s “who;” if it’s “him” or “her,” then it’s “whom.”

TIP: Here’s the easy trick: him ends in the letter “m” and so does whom. And, he does not end in the letter “m” and neither does who.

Give it a try … use whom in places where you can substitute him.
