RELATIVE PRONOUNS Some examples of Relative Pronouns in English : “I cannot find the book which/that I left on the table” “I know the woman who has blue eyes” “I have just seen the man whom you interviewed” “Do you know the boy whose parents died so tragically?” Note : The Relative Pronoun will have: i) the same number (singular or plural) as the word in the main sentence/clause to which it refers. ii) the same gender (m. f. n.) as the word in the main sentence/clause to which it refers iii) BUT its case (nom. gen. dat. etc.) will depend on its role in its own clause.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.
