I was wondering how you would diagram the following sentence.

Maya threw it and whatever I used to console her.


My main problem with this sentence is the direct object, and I would like some help.

Maya threw it and whatever I used to console her.

MAya threw:

1. it
2. whatever I used

Why? To console her.

How would you like your sentence diagrammed? RK?

Maya threw it and whatever I used to console her.

Also

Maya threw:

1. it
2. whatever I used to console her

Given this interpretation and the one in my previous post in this thread, we can agree that this sentence is open to two interpretations.
