Do you say of whom or of who?
The answer is simple: If you can replace the word with “he” or “she” then you should use who. However, if you can replace it with “him” or “her,” use whom. Let’s look at some examples and do a who vs whom quiz.
How do you use whom correctly in a sentence?
For example, “Who is the best in class?” If you rewrote that question as a statement, “He is the best in class.” makes sense. Use whom when a sentence needs an object pronoun like him or her. For example, “This is for whom?” Again, if you rewrote that question as a statement, “This is for him.” sounds correct.
Is it all of whom or who?
You are correct, it should be “whom”. By the traditional rules, “who” is used for subjects and “whom” for objects. “Who asked the question?” “Who” is the subject, the person doing the action, so that is correct. “You asked whom?” “Whom” is the object, the person receiving the action, so that is correct.
Who I trust or whom I trust?
“Whom can I trust?” is formally accurate, yet both are informally acceptable. In formal grammar, the correct choice would be “whom” because we use the pronoun “who” to refer to the subject of a sentence while “whom” refers to the object of a verb or preposition.
Who I remember or whom I remember?
When in doubt, try this simple trick: If you can replace the word with “he”’ or “’she,” use who. If you can replace it with “him” or “her,” use whom. Who should be used to refer to the subject of a sentence. Whom should be used to refer to the object of a verb or preposition.
Who or whom should I ask?
Who I hope or whom I hope?
Insert the words he and him into your sentence to see which one sounds right. If he sounds right, use who. If him sounds right, use whom.
How to use who vs. whom correctly?

(They fought over him? – After whom do I enter the stage? – Whom did you recommend for the job? – “For Whom the Bell Tolls” (The title of this famous Ernest Hemingway novel is saying, “The Bell Rings for Him.”)
When do you use the word whom instead of who?
Who is a pronoun, which means that it’s used instead of a noun or noun phrase to refer to a noun/noun phrase that has already been mentioned or that does not need to be named specifically. Whom replaces who in spots where that word would receive the action of the verb or complete the meaning of a preposition. ‘Who’ vs ‘Whom’ Examples
Is it proper to say with who or with whom?
Yes, and whom is the only form possible in this construction, From is a preposition, and the noun or pronoun following it must be in the accusative case.
