      Quando fazemos uma question, muitas vezes queremos saber justamente quem é o subject (o author da action) ou o object (o que recebe a action). É aí que entram as words who and whom. Do you know how to use them?

      Who deve ser used para se referir ao subject da sentence, ou seja, o author da action.  

      Eg.: Who made this delicious cake?
                 – My brother.

      Subject (o author da action): My brother
      Object (o que recebe a action): This delicious cake

(Aqui, who substitui o subject da sentence, que é my brother).

      Já o Whom deve ser used para se referir ao object da sentence, ou seja, aquele que recebe a action.

      Eg.1: Whom do you think we should invite to the party?
                   – I think we should invite all students.

      Subject (o author da action): We
      Object (o que recebe a action): All students

(Aqui, whom is substitui o object da sentence, que é all students).

      Eg.2: To whom do you prefer to talk?
                   – I prefer to talk to my best friend.

      Subject (o author da action): You
      Object (o que recebe a action): My best friend

(Aqui, whom is substitui o object da sentence, que é my best friend).
