    Its A. If you think about it and read the sentences A makes the most sense

    You cannot ALWAYS determine whether it is correct to use who or whom simply by how it sounds. That is not an effective way to make the determination. You need a definitive rule, and there is one: You use 'who' when you are referring to the subject of a clause and 'whom' when you are referring to the object of a clause. The subject of a clause is the one that is performing the verb. The object of a clause is the one having the action done to it. Joe kicked Fred. - Joe is the subject Fred is the object. Therefore: Who kicked Fred? Joe kicked whom? Susan told Joe that she loved him. - Susan is the subject, Joe is the object. Therefore: Who loves Joe? Susan loves whom? Simple as that.
