    Re: Grammar

    Yes. "websites ... which have".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Grammatically, 'websites' should not be the antecedent of 'which' according to the answer to my question in this post. Have I misunderstood the answer?

    The answerer has forbidden me to quote his old posts, so I can only add a link here.

    Re: Grammar

    Matthew you seem to once again be unable to resist your urge to hijack threads to ask matters of your own interest and thus divert attention from the OP's question.

    I ask you again to not do this. I have moved the posts to a new thread in the right forum. I will advocate for your posts going through moderation before they can appear if you continue.

    Re: Grammar

    Yes, Matthew, you misunderstood my answer. In the sentence that you linked to, the beginning was 'They put a bucket on the door which would...". I objected to the structure because it seemed to say that the door would fall on his head. Certainly, "websites can be the antecedent of "which".

    Re: Grammar

    After thinking hard for a whole day, I think that 'websites' can be the antecedent of 'which' because 'websites for English grammar exercises' is a noun phrase while 'bucket' cannot be the antecedent of 'which' because 'a bucket on the door' cannot be considered a noun phrase in that context.

    Am I right or wrong?

    Please stick to the point of the question.
