    WHO, WHOM
    In direct and indirect questions
    In direct and indirect questions as well as after expressions of (un)certainty and doubt (e.g. no ), translate who using quién/quiénes w hen it is the subject of a verb:
    Who broke the window? ¿Quién rompió la ventana?
    She had no idea who her real parents were Ignoraba quiénes eran sus verdaderos padres ► When who/ whom is the object of a verb or preposition, translate using quién/quiénes p receded by personal a or another preposition as relevant:
    Who(m) did you call? ¿A quién llamaste?
    Who(m) is she going to marry? ¿Con quién se va a casar?
    You must tell me who you are going to go out with Tienes que decirme con quién/quiénes vas a salir
    In exclamations
    Translate using quién/quiénes w ith an accent as in the interrogative form:
    Who would have thought it! ¡Quién lo hubiera pensado!
    As relative
    When who/ whom follows the noun it refers to, the most common translation is que:
    Do you recognize the three girls who have just come in? ¿Reconoces a las tres chicas que acaban de entrar?
    Peter, who was at the match, has told me all about it Peter, que estuvo en el partido, me lo ha contado todo
    That man (who(m)) you saw wasn't my father El hombre que viste no era mi padre NOTE: Personal a is not used before que.
    "Who" as subject of a verb
    When who is the subject, que can sometimes be substituted by el cual/ la cual or quien (singular) and los cuales/ las cuales or quienes (plural). This can help avoid ambiguity:
    I bumped into Ian and Sue, who had just come back from Madrid Me encontré con Ian y con Sue, la cual or quien acababa de regresar de Madrid ► Only que is possible in cases where subject who can be substituted by that, i.e. where who defines the person in question and the sentence does not make sense if you omit the who clause:
    The little boy who won the cycle race is Sarah's nephew El niñito que ganó la carrera ciclista es el sobrino de Sarah
    "Who(m)" as object of a verb or preposition
    When who (m) is the object of a verb, you can translate it using que as above. Alternatively, especially in formal language, use personal a + quien/ quienes or personal a + ((article)) + cual/ cuales {etc} or personal a + ((article)) + que:
    The woman (who or whom) you're describing is my music teacher La señora que or a quien or a la cual or a la que describes es mi profesora de música
    "Who(m)" as object of a preposition
    After prepositions, you should usually use que or cual preceded by the article or quien:
    This is the girl (who or whom) I talked to you about esta es la chica de la que or de la cual or de quien te hablé For further uses and examples, see who, whom
