Hi,

Could you please check for me if I have used this words correctly?


The girl you met in the party whom was a famous musician.

It is legal to [ reveal / disclose / imply ] the highest bidding amount then other party can have an opportunity to counter offer it. (Which word is a better word here please?)


Cheers

John AkiThe girl you met in at the party whom was a famous musician.

If you want 'whom' in the sentence, you have to put it elsewhere.

John AkiIt is legal to [ reveal / disclose / imply ] the highest bidding amount then ? other party can have an opportunity to counter offer it.
so that another party can make a counter offer.

'then' seems like the wrong word. You might mean 'so that'.

Both 'reveal' and 'disclose' are good choices. 'imply' doesn't work.

Thanks Mr CJ,

Could you please teach me how use the owrd "whom" correctlt please?

That's strange. I thought I had posted the sentence with 'whom'.

The girl [whom you met at the party] was a famous musician.

It's a combination of these two:

The girl was a famous musician.
You met the girl at the party.

where 'the girl' is the same girl in both sentences.


Try this one:

The man had a traffic accident.
We met the man yesterday.

What's the sentence with 'whom' that combines those two sentences?

CJ

Thanks MJ,

How about this?

The man whom we met had a traffic accident yesterday.

Thanks MJ, (Now I have a new name. Emotion: wink )

How about this?

The man whom we met had a traffic accident yesterday.

You can't get a better answer than that. Emotion: yes

Note: In everyday conversation you leave out 'whom' in these cases.

Thanks Mr CJ,
