How to use who and whom

Editing_and_proofreading_blog_249Apparently, when a man uses “whom” on his dating site profile, he gets 31% more contacts. Women see it as a sign of intelligence.

I can’t find any statistics to prove whether the grammar needs to be correct to get the results, or whether men just need to drop the word in somewhere.

Anyway, back to the point. This post explains how to work this one out. If you get confused by terms like subject & object, just keep ploughing on. Help is at hand.
