I've always wondered when to use who and when to use whom. Do any writing teachers know? Thanks!

  • English -

    Use who when it is the subject.


    Who is at the door?
    I don't know who it is.

    Use whom when it is the direct object, indirect object, or object of a preposition.

    Whom are you going to see?
    To whom are you writing the letter?

    Check this site for more information.
