    Default I want a grammar rule to the point.

    Hello everyone,

    I would like to know a grammar rule on this point because I don't understand why the reader used it in this way.

    'We would be very pleased if you agreed to be a featured speaker at the program, the topic of which is “Advice on personal finance”.

    In bold.

    I actually know something like : some of which, lots of which, many of whom. But the topic of which I can't get.
    I wish I had better English, but I work hard to improve it. I'm studying for IGCSE, so I'm only interested in BrE.

    First off, thanks a lot. Would you give a source I could study to get deeper in this point. I want to know more about it. I would appreciate it if you would help.
