Who who whom?

Learn German> German lessons and exercises> German test # 109824


The trick to understanding the three 'who' in German (wer ?, wen ?, wem?) Is:

1. determine if the question is about the subject or an object

2. determine which case the main verb takes

 

If the question is about the subject, use 'who'. Like this:

I am the prince. Who are you? The man is waiting at the bus stop. Who is waiting at the bus stop?

 

 

If the question is about an object, determine which case the main verb takes. Like this:

David sees his little brother. Who does he see Maren kisses her sister. Who is she kissing  

('see' takes the accusative) (kissing takes the accusative)

 

 

The pilot helps the children across the street. Who does the pilot help? (help takes the dative)

Jan wants to answer the teacher. Who does Jan want to answer? (reply takes the dative)

 

Find the right 'who?'.
