Interrogative Pronouns

Personal info:

Review: Interrogative Pronouns: Interrogative Pronouns are USED TO ASK QUESTIONS (they need to have a question mark at the end of the sentence in order for it to be a proper interrogative pronoun)...

The most used and main Interrogative pronouns are what, which, who, whom and whose.

The other, less common interrogative pronouns are the same as the ones above but with the suffix -ever or -soever (e.g., whatever, whichever, whatsoever, whichsoever)

Example #1 - Did the Flyers hockey team or Red Wings win the game last night. --> Which hockey team won the game last night?.

Example #2 - A prize will be given to someone who can solve the riddle. --> (Whoever) A prize will be given to whoever solves the riddle.

Be sure to know that most interrogative pronouns can be used as determiners, but they are not the same.

A determiner modifies and precedes a noun: this house, every house, which house? So 'which' is an Interrogative pronoun and determiner. It can also be used on its own, without a following noun: 'Which is your house?' This is what we call an Interrogative pronoun.

The determiners that share Interragative pronouns are: what, which, whose

But remember the determiners that i am using are determining between two things instead of 3 or more

Example #1- 'What' can also be both: 'What colour do you like best red or blue?' (determiner, because you are determining which color) 'What is your favourite colour?' (Interrogative pronoun, because you are simptly telling what your favorite is)

Example #2- 'Who' can only be used as an Interrogatve pronoun, along with: 'Who is that?' A determiner use would be:'Who man is your brother?', but this doesn't makes sense, as opposed to "Which man is your brother?" but this doesn't makes sense
