Who and That (Part 3 of 3)

To complicate this, use whose with people or objects because it's the plural possessive of who. However, English has no plural possessive for that.

1. Those students whose work is incomplete will fail the course.

2. Those streetlights whose rays shine into my bedroom prevent my sleeping soundly.

I use whose as the plural possessive 
of people and objects.
