    Two questions regarding the usage of 'which'

    Roman Fever tries to show that people of upper class are not much different by depicting the decadent lifestyle of two upper class ladies, which all human beings are prone to.
    This is a part of my essay. I want to say that the decadent lifestyle is very temping to all human beings. Is the quoted sentenced correctly?


    Another question.

    I could probably change the former sentence like the above to avoid the problem, but I wonder how far 'which' extends to. Does this sentence mean all human beings are prone to 'decadent lifestyle', or 'the two ladies' decadent lifestyle'?

    I know I rarely reply and express the gratitude when people provide answers to my thread, but I do read them all and I am very thankful for them. And again, your help is and will be most appreciated.

    I think in both cases "which" goes fine.
