Is the text in bold correct? I am really troubled to decide on plural/singular verb when prepositional phrases come in.
In grammatical jargons:
Whenever relative pronouns such as 'that' and 'which' modify the prepositional phrases such as 'X of Y', or 'X in Y in Z', etc., relative pronoun refers to which noun as antecedent: X, Y, etc
X of Y that ... Here that refers to X or Y?
Also please assume that relative pronouns denotes essential information. Need Experts advice on that and which.
