    Default Doubt about ''of which''

    Hello, I couldn't understand the rule about using ''of which'': '' The phrase of which is nonstandard usage when referring to a singular noun''. May someone clarify it to me? Thank you.

    Where did you encounter that 'rule'? It's nonsense.

    'She brought a cake which I took a big slice of'

    equates to

    'She brought a cake, of which I took a big slice'.
