"One example is the release earlier this year of the Galaxy S6 smartphone. It does not seem to be selling much better than its predecessor, which received poor reviews, prompting a fall in Samsung’s market share."
Could you explain the "which" in the sentence above is referring to Galaxy S6 or its predecessor? How can I tell when it is referring to
"Galaxy S6" and when it is referring to "its predecessor"? Thanks.
I think 'which' refers to 'predecessor', which is close to the relative pronoun.
The past tense 'received' also makes me think that 'predecessor' is the antecedent.
