I have been most certainly sure that the second is the better option until I came across the first expression from a lecture by an American professor on EdX.

And an array is a chunk of memory, each of whom’s elements are contiguous, back to back to back to back.

Can anyone elaborate which of the two is correct, and if both are, then which situations are they correct in?

  • Do you have a link to the lecture, or are you able to write down the sentence where "each of whom's" is used? – herisson May 7 '17 at 20:13
  • yes, given the link now – MycrofD May 7 '17 at 22:46
  • @sumelic He's provided the link now, from which I’ve transcribed the text. I fear this is yet another instance of “whom-hypercorrection”, the sort of thing that generates errors like Give it to ⭑whomever wants it for Give it whoever wants it, as well as The prize goes to ⭑whomever’s horse places first for The prize goes to whosever horse places first. – tchrist May 7 '17 at 22:55
