The girl I spoke to is very pretty
This was marked wrong, with explanation that "whom" is needed to create a Noun modifier

But another question had: The security person WHOM we met was nice = The security person we met was nice

So my question is: which one is correct? Am I missing something?

Hi dadihung, where exactly is it marked wrong?

This sentence would be actually incorrect on GMAT, though not as much for missing the whom as for the fact that in GMAT, clauses don't end in a preposition (here, the clause is ending in preposition to).
