Definition :
Interrogative Pronouns, which ask questions, as, who, which, what, whom, whose.

They are here used for asking questions, and are, therefore, called Interrogative Pronouns.


Who built that house?
Which is your house?
Whose is this book?
Which do you prefer, tea or coffee?
Which of the boys saw him?
What is the matter?
Who is he talking to?
Who are those people?
Whom do you want?
Whose is this umbrella?
Whom are you playing with?


Note :
Who can be used as the object of a verb as well as the subject.
Whom is used only as the object.
If we put the preposition before the interrogative pronoun, you must use whom.
The Interrogative Pronouns are used in asking indirect questions.


I asked who was speaking.
Ask what he wants.
Say which you would like best.
