The lovestruck boy was sad because the girl who/whom he loved had left him for another.

The girl is not a subject but rather an object of the sentence; we need whom for object and who - for subject.
To test for subject/object, we can flip the sentence: "he loved her". So she is an object on his love. D wins.
