Interrogative pronouns

Interrogative pronouns are used in inquiry, to form special questions. Here belong who, whom, whose, what, which. Whom is the form of the ob­jective case of the pronoun who but there is a steady tendency in English for this form to be replaced by the nominative form who. The interrogative pronouns, due to their function, occupy the initial po­sition in the sentence, with the pronoun who always in the function of sub­ject. Whom functions as object: Whom did you see? What and which may function in the positions of a subject or an object and in the position of an at­tribute: What is your favourite dish? What do you do in the evenings? What dish is she cooking? Which holiday do you like most? Which programme do you want to watch?
