Who and Whom
Whom is the object form of who. Whom is not common in informal English. We prefer to use who as an object.
After a preposition, we must use whom. Who is not possible in this case.
In identifying or restrictive relative clauses we do not usually use whom. Either we leave out the object pronoun, or we use that or who.
In non-identifying relative clauses whom can be used.
Both who and whom can be used in sentences like ‘He was trying to find an old friend who/whom he had known since childhood’.
