I recently came across a grammar question that asked which is correct:
"Do you see who I see?" or "Do you see whom I see?"

The correct answer cited was "Do you see who I see?" but I can't figure out why it's not "whom I see", as the question is about someone "whom I see": "I see him.  Do you see him?".  Why is "who I see" correct?

Hi Professor Hendershot!

I met a sentence: We are now living at a time _____ robots are taking over much of the work done by human beings before. The answer given is "when". But I just wonder whether I could use "that" to fill the blank or not. Thanks for the help!
