    Question The music to which we listened was good

    What is the role of "to" sentence below? However, can we use the "to" after the "listened" instead of before the "which"? Thanks in advance.


    "The music to which we listened was good."

    Re: To Role

    It's a preposition. The sentence is formal and old-fashioned; most people nowadays would put the preposition after listened.
