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.
