Who refers to Subject of sentence by Whom refers to target of a verb 10/02/2022, 12:57pm PDT
If the sentence still makes sense when you replace the word in question with 'he,' 'she,' or 'they,' use "who. "

If the sentence requires 'him,' 'her,' or 'them' to make sense, fill in the blank with "whom."




So, as a simple mnemonic:

"The child whose guardian knows whom got who pregnant," would be grammatically incorrect.
