Here’s your pro-tip from an English Major for the day:

If you’re confused about the correct place to put the word “whom” in a sentence, use the “he/she” vs “him/her” test.

he/she = who

him/her = whom

For example, if you’re saying “Who wrote this letter?”

Who is correct here because he/she wrote the letter.

Now if you’re saying “To whom do I give this letter?”

You are giving the letter to him/her, thus, whom is correct.
