A Grammar Lesson

Because I didn’t know how to do this.� Now you can benefit from my research.

Whose or Who’s?

  • Whose is the possessive form of who (or, occasionally, which). It means “belonging to whom or which.”
  • Who’s is a contraction of who is or who has. Notice the apostrophe replacing the missing letters.


Incorrect: Who’s department do you work for?

Correct: Whose department do you work for?

Correct: Who’s coming to visit tomorrow?
