    Question which

    hi guys!!!

    i have a question about "which"

    in which cases can we use it after a person or a noun which implies human being? I read in a thread: " I have friends, which i trust." I know that we use "which" to refer to things and animals.

    Thank you!!!!

    Default Re: which

    which doesn't refer to the noun 'friends'. It refers back to the omitted noun 'group':

    EX: I have (a group of) friends that/which I trust.
