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.

???

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.

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.
