Relative Pronouns.

The Relative Pronouns are who, with its possessive whose and objective whom; which, with its possessive whose (or of which); what, that, as, and but. 

Who and whom are used of persons; whose is used of persons or things; which is used of things or non-human creatures. That can be used of things or persons.

As when a relative pronoun is used in the following ways:

1. With such and same. 

It was such a sight as I never want to see again.
He is the same kind of man as my father. 

2. In expressions like: Common names, as Smith and Jones. (Here as = which may be.)

3. In the sense of a fact which:

He was a Chinese-man, as we could tell by his talk

But when a relative pronoun is used thus:
