Hello EveryOne,
Can someone please explain whether WHICH/THAT/ANY PRONOUN can refer to a noun in a prepositional phrase?

Thanks

Hi abhinashgc, of course they can. In fact numerous examples can be found in official examples.

The results of the company's cost-cutting measures are evident in its profits, which have increased 5 percent during the first 3 months of this year after falling over the last two years.

which refers to profits (that appears as part of prepositional phrase in its profits).

Which vs that

I hate the dogs that bark.

(that without comma means subset)

It means their are many dogs and you hate only those dogs which bark
_______________

I hate dogs, which bark.

I hate all dogs. Additional quality of those dogs is they bark.
