    Problem of modifier

    Thanks for viewing. Here's my question:

    What is which representing in the sentence below?

    English has a beauty of its own and forms of expression which are duplicated nowhere else.


    Is it 'expression', 'forms', or 'beauty and forms'?

    Is this sentence correct?
    I have a apple and a banana which were bought yesterday.


    Thanks!

    [1] . . . forms of expression which are duplicated nowhere else.

    [2] I have an apple and a banana, which were (both) bought yesterday.

    [3] I have an apple and a banana, both of which were bought yesterday.
