To interrogate is to ask someone questions. Interrogative pronouns ask questions.
Who, whom, and whose refer to people. Who is a subject pronoun. Whom is an object pronoun. Whose is a possessive pronoun.
Use who when you would use I; use whom when you would use me.
Who would like some ice cream? I would like some ice cream.
Whom did you ask for cookies? You asked me for cookies. (Answer the question.)
To whom did you wave? You waved to me.
