Below is a question out of the Manhattan GMAT Prep problem set that I do not understand. Hopefully someone here can explain the answer to me.

Problem instruction:
1)What is the antecedent of the pronoun? If you can locate it, underline it. If the antecendent is unclear or not there at all, rewrite the sentence correcting the error.
2)Do the pronoun and antecendent agree in number? If they do, mark with a check. If they do not, rewrite the sentence correcting the error
3)Is the pronoun in the proper case? If it is, mark with a check. If it is not, rewrite the sentence correcting the error.

(chapter 4 - problem set #7)

We finally choose the coffee table towards the back of the store, which we thought would complement our living room furniture.

------------------------------
correct answer:

We finally choose the coffee table towaqrds the back of the store, because we thought it would complement our living room furniture.

-------------------------------

Why do we need to add "it" to the sentence? is it because the second part of the sentence requires a subject?[/i]

appears as if the store complements your living room furniture

So remove which as it refers to store and because is introduced to cite the reason for the decision taken and [b][b]it [/b][/b]would refer to the coffee table
