Relative pronoun

Post by SARDORBEK » Sat May 19, 2012 5:04 am

He comes from a large family, all of … now live in Australia.
(a) who
(b) that
(c) which
(d) whose

Dear ALAN! I have seen this test in a book recently.
I think, there is no correct answer among versions, since after the preposition of we should use
“whom” in (a) , that’s to say - all of whom. If I chose (b) or (c) then the verb live would have
to end in “s”, mustn’t it? What would be the correct answer in this case?

Both 'which' and 'who' can be used in relation to 'family'.
