Hi All,

Got a question on use of pronoun usage.

Is it wrong for a pronoun to refer to noun in an of prepositional phrase or any prepositional phrase. Was doing some reading through Manhattan GMAT forum. But could not find anything conclusive.

Can't think of an example to quote here. Any help on this topic is much appreciated.

MGMAT does says that a noun in a prepositional phrase cannot be the subject of the sentence but that doesn't mean that a pronoun cannot refer to it, it can.

I think I read a similar sentence on this website as the one mentioned below:
Secret copies of journal, which was thought to be missing, are available now.
Here "which" refers to "journal" but the subject of the sentence is "Secret copies" and hence the verb is "are".

Hi Abhii,
I'm also confused about this topic, you provide a good example regarding use 'which' in the sentence. But i have some doubt in my mind, whether 'which' is a used as pronoun or conjunction in the above sentence. Please reply soon.
