Hi

Can anyone point out what " to which " is doing exactly in the sentence below ?
I dont know what noun or noun phrase " to which" is defining.


A manor in English law is an estate in land to which is incident the right to hold a court termed court baron, that is to say a manorial court.

Your IP address suggests your current location is Peru.

Why would you want to trick us that way?

We like to think new members are telling us the truth about themselves.

I didn't trick you i tricked the system which uses my real IP to send me tons of ads and also invades my privacy .You interred i was from Peru by checking out my IP address which is not really a reliable way to figure out someone's nationality. I'm from Canada by the way.

Now . Can i have my questions answered by a teacher please ?:roll:

You'll be seeing many Americans routinely operating behind a VPN since Congress has overturned a rule that prohibited ISPs from selling their users' browsing history. I doubt many of them will choose Peruvian IPs, though, which would be sure to impose a serious performance hit.

"To which" refers to "an estate in land".

We don't use IP addresses to work out users' nationality. That's the purpose of the combination of "home country" and "native language" (although of course someone's home country can change if they emigrate). We simply use IP addresses to check that they match the "Current Location" section of the profile. We do this to weed out spammers and trolls, who frequently lie about their whereabouts.

Note my corrections above. It's important to follow these rules of written English:

- Start every sentence with a capital letter.
- End every sentence with one appropriate punctuation mark.
- Always capitalise the word "I".
- Do not put a space before a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
- Always put a space after a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
