    Default type of sentence and its tree diagram

    please I want to know the type of the following sentence and its tree diagram:

    This time I caved in and bought a bar of chocolate, which by that point I convinced
    myself could be classified as a 'need' rather than a 'want'.

    Compound sentence:

    I / caved in . . .and . . . .(I)/ bought / bar.


    (the remaining huge clause modifies "bar" because it describes what kind of bar.)
