who vs. whom


Spellcheck says to use "who" but I think it sounds better to use "whom" are in eight grade....

Please help. Thank you.

See example:

For middle school students, most of who are in eighth grade, they have a high school prep program that puts their students ahead of the curve when they arrive at DHS.

To discover which is correct with a "sounds right" approach:


What personal pronoun would you use afer most of . . .


Most of they . . . (incorrect)

Most of them . . . (correct)


So, you would use the objective case (them).

Which is the objective case of who or whom?

here is a fun link, whether you already understand the distinction between "who" and "whom" or not! after starting the e-lesson, the topic is discussed on page 5, but I would start from the beginning: www.linguicon.com/schools/students/grammar/grammar-2-050/
