In the sentence below:

"That's the same man that asked me for money yesterday"

Can't we use who instead of that ?

In GMAT land, we HAVE TO use "who", not "that".

Just in GMAT-land? Isn't it proper Englisch to say "who" if we refer to a person?

When referring to a person, both "who" and "that" are proper English.
Aber in GMAT nur "who" ist moeglisch. Wir muessen nicht "that" benutzen.
