    what does part of a sentence refer to?

    Hello everyone

    I'd like to ask what "being registered by the camera" refers to in the following sentence:

    The delay in the light emanating from within the orbs themselves being registered by the camera is what formed the basis of the communication I established by allowing
    the hexagonal- and spherical-shaped orb pictures to stand for a “yes” and “no” response respectively.


    I think that "being registered by the camera" refers to "orbs" but I'm not sure. Can "being registered by the camera" refer to "light"?

    Re: what does part of a sentence refer to?

    It is easier to understand if the sentence is restructured.

    The camera is registering the delay in the light emanating from within the orbs themselves.

    So yes, you're right; it is referring the the orb, or more specifically, the (light) delay being emitted by the orb.

    I am not a teacher.
