    clause

    Are these sentences correct:

    1-That loaf was stale that you sold me.
    2-The loaf was stale that you sold me.

    3-That loaf was stale which you sold me.
    4-The loaf was stale which you sold me.

    Hi,

    It would be better to say:

    'The loaf that you sold me was stale,' or 'The loaf, which you sold me, was stale.'

    I agree with Izabela. It is best to place a relative clause directly after the noun it describes.
