    antecedent of those

    Hi!
    What is antecedent of the pronoun "those" in the following sentence?
    "This chapter provides a framing for those which follow in paying particular attention to the context within which e-learning is becoming..."
    is antecedent "chapter", or "people" (as an unmentioned antecedent)?
    Note: this pasage is from the first chapter of a book containing several chapters.
    thanks very much

    Re: antecedent of those

    Hi, pars.

    Yes, I understand that.
    You could add some new information by making a new post in the same thread.
    (Your question has been answered there, by the way.)
    You could add, for example, "I forgot to mention that this passage was from the first chapter of a book ..."
    However, please do not edit the original post, which could make the following responses meaningless.
