    Relative clause

    'Not a single house in the street had escaped undamaged' (WHICH)
    There...
    Should it be: 'There was not a single house in the street which had escaped undamaged' or 'There is not a single house in the street which had escaped undamaged'

    Re: Relative clause

    NOT A TEACHER

    I would choose the first one, as I do not see any reason to go back from present simple to past perfect. Therefore, the first possibility seems to me far more sensible. However, teachers might prove me wrong.
