I just have a general modifer question and I hope that this is the right forum to post.
if not, I apologize!
The best way is to demonstrate my concerns with an example:
Fossils of the arm of a sloth, which ...
Now, I know that "which" modifies the noun ultimately preceding the comma.
But is the same thing true for nouns followed by prepositional phrases like here (of the arm of the sloth)?
does the which modify "sloth"
Fossils, since "of ...." only describes the noun Fossils.
So is it:
Fossils [strike]of the arm of a sloth[/strike], which ...
or [strike]Fossils of the arm of a[/strike] sloth, which
