"The judges will consider (whoever,whomever) they feel is qualified."
Which one is it whoever or whomever?
To determine how to use whoever and whomever, you just follow some simple steps.
1. First determine what clause it is part of. In this sentence, it is part of
(whoever,whomever) they feel is qualified. (You can ignore the rest of the sentence now!)
2. Next, Turn the clause into regular order.
they feel (whoever,whomever) is qualified
3. Now that the sentence is in regular order, it is easy to see that They is the subject and (whoever, whomever) is the direct object.
4. Recall that who and whoever are nominative (subjects and predicate nominatives) and whom and whomever are objective (all types of objects).
5. The sentence should, therefore be
The judges will consider whomever they feel is qualified.
This will work for you every time you have to decide between who and whom or whoever and whomever.
