1. 两者均可指人,有时可互换(包括当先行词为 all, anyone, someone等,同时也包括先行词受the only等的修饰时):

All that [who] heard him were delighted. 所有听了他讲话的人都很高兴。

3. 但是在下列情况,通常要用 who:

当先行词为 those 且指人时,英语习惯上要用 who 来引导定语从句。如:

Those who couldn’t walk were carried on stretchers. 那些不能走的人都用担架抬着。

It is said that those who eat the most are the least healthy. 据说吃得最多的人身体最差。

Let us spend a few moments in silence so that / in order that we remember those who died to preserve our freedom. 让我们默哀片刻,以缅怀那些为维护我们的自由而牺牲了的人们。

注:偶尔也可见到在 who 之后用 that 引导定语从句的用例,但相当少见。如:

The danger is that people who pay their bills on time will be lumped in with those that don’t. 危险的是那些及时付账的人将会同那些不及时付账的人混在一起。(摘自《朗文当代英语辞典》2003年第4版)
