Usage of that and which [#permalink] New post 17 Jul 2013, 03:22
This is my understanding about the usage of that and which:

The branches of the tree, a magnificent one, ... -> in this 'a magnificent one' refers to the tree and not to 'The branches of the tree'.

The branches of the tree that were cut down last week... -> in this that refers to 'The branches of the tree' and not to 'tree'

The branches of the tree that was cut down last week... -> in this that refers to 'tree' and not to 'The branches of the tree'

The branches of the tree, which was cut down last week,... -> in this which refers to 'the tree' and not to 'The branches of the tree'

Please correct me if I am wrong.

Right. Because "a magnificient one" is singular and it can only refer to "tree"

The branches of the tree that were cut down last week... -> in this that refers to 'The branches of the tree' and not to 'tree'
Right. Because "were" is plural and can only refer to "branches".

The branches of the tree that was cut down last week... -> in this that refers to 'tree' and not to 'The branches of the tree'
Right. "was" is singular and can only refer to "tree"

The branches of the tree, which was cut down last week,... -> in this which refers to 'the tree' and not to 'The branches of the tree'
Right. "was" is singular and can only refer to "tree"

Please correct me if I am wrong.
