The question is about relative pronoun and modifier.
Prosecutors use a reliable forensic method, graphology, in forgery cases, which may also be used by employers to uncover clues to prospective employees' characters.

A. Prosecutors use a reliable forensic method, graphology, in forgery cases, which may also be used by
Which is closest to the term 'forgery cases' and therefore erroneously modifies it, where as it should be modifying the term graphology.

B. Prosecutors in forgery cases that have used graphology as a reliable forensic method and may also be used by
Hwen you look parallelism to the second half after AND, it i sillogical to say ' forgery cases that may also be used..'

C. Graphology, a reliable forensic method used by prosecutors in forgery cases, may also be used by
Correct..

D. As a reliable forensic method, prosecutors use graphology in forgery cases, which may also be used by
Prosecutors are not reliable method.. Modifier error. Also which does not modify the term graphology correctly.

E. Prosecutors which use graphology in forgery cases, a reliable forensic method may also be used by
Which cannot be used for prosecutors. Also the noun modifier ' a reliable..' is not correctly modifying the method.

Dear chetan2u

"in forgey cases" is also a modifier

graphology, in forgery cases, which may also be used by

why "which" cannot jump over this modifier to modify "graphology"?
