I marked B instead of C. Why 'as Children' and not 'as a child'?

Could you please help in comparing B and C.

It is C because the subject that "they" is referring to is "violent criminals", which is plural.

I think so too

even though main subject (criminals) is plural, as a child seems logical to me

We use which to provide more information about thing (s) but not identifying specific thing(s)
We use that to provide more information for specific thing ( s )information
In this sentence humiliation that lead to criminals to degrade their victims. Not any humiliation

Hi,

That VS Which - what is the difference ? :)

Best way to remember the difference between that and which: If removing the words that follow would change the meaning of the sentence, use "that." Otherwise, "which" is fine.

Example of Non Restrictive Clause

Ferrari, which is expensive always attracts attention (We all know that Ferrari is expensive, so here if we leave out words " which is expensive " wont change the meaning of sentence)

Example of Restrictive Clause

Ferraris that cost more than 500k attract more attention. ( So here we are talking about particular case, hence we use "that" )

All in all use "which" in non restrictive clause ( if leaving out does not change meaning) and use "that" in restrictive clause ( if leaving out changes meaning )

Hope it helps :)

"They" experienced as "a child/children?"

Children is correct because it is in reference with "they".
