Interrogative Pronouns

Interrogative pronouns replace unknown nouns in questions. Some common interrogative pronouns are who, whose, what, and which.

What is the clinical name of that compound? [What is the subject of the question.]

Of the two methods, which proved more effective? [Which refers to methods.]

Choose the form of who carefully so that it matches the context of the sentence. See Pronoun Case.
