"Whom" is the object of a prepositional phrase, an indirect object, or a direct object.

English only makes sense once you learn a different language. (less sense in most cases!)

Here is how I verify... Translate to Spanish.

If it is only "quien" (missing accent), then it is "who".

If it is "de quien" (missing accent), then it is "whom". literally: "of whom, from whom, to whom"
