  1. We use “who” and “whom” for people, and “which” for objects. “That” can be used both for humans and objects. Their use:
  1. a) We use “who, which, that” following a name or to signify the person or object we are talking about.

the man who first landed on the moon

the book that you gave me yesterday

the person who/whom you are calling

 

  1. b) We use “who” or “which” to provide further information about someone or something whose identity we are already aware.

I drink a lot of water, which is good for health.

 

  1. c) “Whose” can be used to express possession over objects and/or people. Just like an adjective, “whose” must be used together with the object of possession.

    2.We can use “where” after names of places, “when” after names of time, and “why” after the word “reason.”
