Her ( not she), who had been the apple of his eye, he now began to regard with somwthing like distrust.
Him( not he), who has always inspired in her a respect which almost overcame her affection, she now saw the object of open pleasantry.
I copied the above two sentences from Wren and Martin Grammar book. I couldn't understand them at all
PS *I used this phrase before I realized where the examples came from; I assumed the writers of your grammar book had thought them up - as examples of contemporary English they seemed 'horribly contrived'. I fact, they were 'contrived' (in a good sense) by my favourite English novelist, and they are 'horrible' only in that they make life unnecessarily difficult for students when reproduced in the context of a teaching book.

Even though I struggle understanding, Frankly, I love reading such intricate sentences:) The more I read and hear such kind, The more I develop interest and love toward English
'I fact' = 'The fact' or 'I realised later'?
