    which I could have done

    Are these sentences correct:

    1-They asked me to betray you, which I could have done, but did not.
    2-They asked me to betray you, which I could have, but did not.

    Meaning: They asked me to betray you. I could have done that, but did not.

    I think they both work, but I am not sure.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: which I could have done

    I think both are OK, though I prefer the first.

    Re: which I could have done

    PS This could also work- there is a small theoretical risk of ambiguity, but I would takeit to mean the person didn't betray me: They asked me to betray you, which I could have done.
