         P. 312
   A pronoun used to form a question is called an
    interrogative pronoun.
   The antecedents of interrogative pronouns are
    the words that answer the question.
   If the words which and what come directly
    before nouns, they act as adjectives, not as
    pronouns.
   If which and what stand alone, they act as
    pronouns.
       Adjectives- Which picture do you like?
       Pronoun- Which do you like?
   The interrogative pronoun who has different
    forms to reflect case depending on how you
    use it in a sentence.
       Nominative Case: who (subject pronoun)
            Who knows the story?
       Objective Case: who (object pronoun)
            To whom did you give a book.
   To help you decide whether to use who or
    whom, turn the question into a statement.
   Substitute he or she for who,
    and use him or her in place of whom
                    to see which case is correct.
     (Who, Whom) will we pick?

     We will pick (who, whom)? We will pick (he,

      him).
   When the interrogative pronoun shows
    possession, use whose, the possessive form of
    who.
