Hints for Using Who. That, and Which


Here are a few simple hints to help you decide whether to use “who,” “that,” or “which” in the sentences that you write.

Use “who” when referring to people. For example: The man who answered the phone was very polite.

Use "that" for clauses that define something specific and provide necessary information. For example: The cake that I made yesterday was delicious. (You are talking about a specific cake.)

Use "which" for clauses that can be removed without changing the meaning of the sentence. The movie, which I saw yesterday, was about a war hero.

Clauses that begin with “which” can be placed between commas or in parentheses.
