i got confused now. can someone clarify it?
in an English forum, native Americans keep on contradicting each other.

which of the following is correct?

i have a group of friends, most of which are blond.
I have a group of friends most of who are blond.
I have a group of freinds most of whom are blond.

i have many friends most of who/whom/which are blond.

???

They're all correct. To my knowledge anyway.

Apart from you need a capital I in your first one and correct the spelling of "friends" in the third one. ;)

P.S. I'm pretty sure "whom" is the correct one.

stop it. i'm serious.
I am being serious myself. Certain words can be interchanged, and depending on the class of person you're dealing with, you're likely to hear slightly different phrases.

In which case, in their own ways, they are all correct.

yes. that's what i thought. whom is the correct one when we say I have many friends, most of whom..

but when we say "a group" don't we say most of which, ONLY?
I have a group of friends, most of which are blond.

Thinking more about it, personally, it sounds better to say "I have a group of friends, most of them are blond"

yes. this sounds right.
but if i'm in the exam and i'm required to choose between who/whom/which then i guess i'll have to go with which (when using 'group')

Doesn't blonde have an e at the end?

Hmm..
i thought the same but they hadn't put an e at the end ... :shifteyes:

"Most of who/whom are blonde" Doesn't make any sense to me but English was never my strong point.
