Random musings from a full-time copy editor trying to make it as a freelance writer and editor.
Hey Angela,I tried this test too. I completely tanked! The appropriate usage of who/whom is one of my biggest failings. (hangng head and sighing deeply with shame).By the way, I added your blog to my blog roll.
Hi Elizabeth,Who/whom can be really tricky, and I'll admit that I didn't fully understand it until I became an editor.Basically, all you need to remember is that "who" is always used as the subject of a sentence (someone who does something), and "whom" is the object (the person things are done to).For me, it helps if I recast the sentence:"Whom do you want to see?""I want to see HER."Her=objective pronoun, so "whom" is correct.Thanks for the add; I'll do likewise. :)
