When to Use “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 employee who answered my questions was very polite.


Use "that" for clauses that define something specific and provide necessary information.


For example: The pie that I made today was tart. (You are talking about a specific pie.)


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.

This post is about another blog hop Grin and Grab it Day 1-25-2015 with free products for one day. Several bloggers have joined this blog hop and by visiting their blogs you can see which usually priced products on TpT are free this Sunday only. We live in different time zones, but products will be marked down in the morning and be priced again in the evening. We just ask you kindly rate them while they are still free as after they are again priced, people who get them for free will be unable to rate them at that point in time.
