One hour in the week was set aside by him for the reception of whomsoever chose to visit him.
One hour in the week was set aside by him for the reception of whosoever chose to visit him.
What is the correct fit among the two here?
For me, any confusion between whomever and whoever boils down to a choice between him and he. Going by the same logic, it is "he chose to visit him" and not "him chose to visit him". So I thought it should be "whosoever" instead of "whomsoever".
But according to my book "whomsoever" is correct.
Please clarify the difference.
