Sentence Mistake

Unread postby Naty » Wed Jul 21, 2010 6:25 pm

Please, does anybody know where is the mistake on the sentences below?
I could not find it...
Thank you!


1. For who did you send this mail?


2. If I was your sister, I'd break up with Matheus as soon as possible.

Hey
I'm not a teacher so maybe someone could confirm this answer, or you could research who/whom as well as the 2nd conditional and see if I'm right ;)

1. For whom did you send this mail?
2. If I were your sister, I'd break up with Matheus as soon as possible.

take care

For whom - 'for' is a preposition.

Compare 'To whom it may concern'; 'With whom were you dancing last night?'; 'From whom did you receive this information?'
