>>Cat is a pest rather than a pet, which is ....

'which is' refers to the the cat, hence the pest.

for example

Cat is a pest rather than a pet, which is quite annoying to one who loves pets.

Could this be given a thought ? [#permalink] New post 31 Aug 2004, 19:21
Cat is a pest rather than a pet, which is quite annoying to one who loves pets.

in my opinion,
Cat, which is quite annoying to one who loves pets, is a pest rather than a pet.

Cat xxxxx pet, which yyyyyyyy

In this scenario, if the sentence is correct which would modify the pet.

Could anyone verify my opinion ?

A modifying clause will always modify to the first subject it catches.
So in this context without any information after which is....it will modify pet.

But like the others already have written. It depends also what information will follow.

Cat, which is an animal with 4 legs, is a pest rather than a pet.
Now which is refers to cat.

Cat is a pest rathen than a pet, which is household animal
Now which is refers to pet.

My apologies for the strange examples, but I hope I am clear that people may understand.

Regards,

Alex
