Can someone explain when to use "which", and when to use "verb+ing"?

I can only point you in right direction, you have to uncover the secrets on your own . start with following thread.
https://gmatclub.com/forum/usage-of-of- ... 36336.html

for Verb+ing you have to go through full modifiers section for better understanding. why not you start from following thread
https://gmatclub.com/forum/sentence-cor ... 92715.html

These are few things come after a lot of hard work and practice .

good luck.
