To determine whether who or whom is correct in a particular circumstance, mentally rearrange the sentence, clause, or question in one or both of the following ways. Substitute another pronoun of the same form, i.e., nominative or objective, to fit the pattern. Omit any parenthetical phrase, leaving only the subject-verb or subject-verb-object. Many problematic examples are given.
